Grand Opening of Westchester Fire Station

This past weekend, residents of the Westchester community came out in droves for the grand opening of Fire Station 5. The opening was a great success, with local youth groups in attendance including cheerleaders from the Paseo Del Rey school, who performed routines for some pre-ceremony entertainment. The local brownie and cub scout groups kicked off the ceremony by leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Chief Reagan of Fire Station 5 introduced his battalion members, who protect the Westchester community each day, and Chief Roupoli of the Fire Department acknowledged the other community leaders and VIPs in attendance.

When Bill spoke to the hundreds who had gathered in the new station, he commended the Fire Department for their hard work and also thanked the community for coming together so strongly to support the Department. He also recognized that the station was built with money from Proposition F and said that Westchester residents should be proud of their commitment to improving such vital facilities throughout our City.

Overall, it was a wonderful event that really highlighted what I think makes Westchester so special: the commitment to community, dedication to improving the lives of others, and the small-town feel that makes this area so unique.
