I had the opportunity to cover today's Fire Service Day events at LA County Fire Dept. station 129 in Lancaster, CA. This was just one of several Fire Service Day open houses throughout LA County. Hundreds of people came through LA County Fire Station 129 to see displays, live demos, vendors, visit with firefighters, participate in a chili cook-off and more!
