Remodeled Fire Station in Piru hosts Open House for public

The Ventura County Fire Department is inviting the public to tour the newly remodeled Fire Station 28 in Piru. The department will host an open house on Saturday, September 6, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

At 10:30 a.m., Supervisor Kathy Long will speak along with Ventura County Fire Department Deputy Chief Kevin Nestor.

In 1931, the Ventura County Fire Department built a fire station on Market St. in Piru, making it the third station in the county fire district. The department recognized the need for fire protection in Piru then, and remains committed to that protection today.

The current fire station was built in 1950, and by remodeling it, the department has renewed its dedication to serving the citizens of Piru and the surrounding area with well-trained, professional firefighters. The open house is an opportunity for the public to see how Piru’s firefighters live while on duty.

The station doors will open at 10 a.m. with the Welcoming Ceremony beginning at 10:30 a.m. There will be station tours, refreshments, displays of firefighting equipment, information on preparing a Wildfire Action Plan and fun fire safety materials for the kids.
