The 19th annual Pancake Breakfast — always a family favorite — takes place on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 7:30 to 11:00 am at Menlo Park Fire District Station One, 300 Middlefield Road.

Sponsored by the Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula and benefiting the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation, there will be kids activities, fire truck tours and more, including an auto extrication, drone demonstration, repelling off the tower and rescue from the tower.

There will also be a coloring table and build a fire engine.

Lastly, there will be a lot of displays the Seagrave, Firenado, tiller truck, Safety Trailer and a blow up walk through tent.

Emailed Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman: “The1941 GMC Truck we named Firenado was formerly owned by Mr. Jose Briones of Redding, California. It survived an apocalyptic fire storm that combined with a tornado to create a “Firenado”, with wind speeds recorded at 147 miles per hour that destroyed almost everything in its path!

“This will be its debut appearance, I think it sends a powerful visual message about preparedness and the actual wrath of a fire storm.”
