On Saturday, February 12th, we hosted a group of Kindergarten Daisy scouts from Troop 98286 at the Company 1 firehouse. Fire fighters Jeff Pereira, Josh Horn, Grady Dies, along with probation member Nick Raczkowski, gave the Daisy scouts an inside look at what it means to be a fire fighter. Below is the wonderful Thank You note, along with this picture, that our members received from Troop 98286.

If you are a girl or boy scout troop in Oakland and you are looking to learn more about what our firefighters do for our community feel free to contact us and we would be happy to arrange a tour.


Dear Chief Dies,

Last Saturday, 2/12/22 our Kindergarten Daisy Troop representing all 3 elementary schools in town had a visit to the firehouse. This was one of our first big trips out and the girls had a wonderful time.

We were so happy they were engaged with questions and answers because they are sometimes shy. Thank you for the welcoming experience.

Our adult leaders also learned a lot that day too. Please send a special thank you to firefighter Pereira for organizing this special visit.
