Spotted: Menlo Fire “fly by” in Belle Haven neighborhood

by Linda Hubbard on May 11, 2020

Emails Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman: “Are you tired of sheltering in place, especially now that the weather is nice, or perhaps the kids are driving you a little nuts, or is it someone very young or very old’s birthday?

“Let us know, we still make house calls! These are tough and difficult times for everyone and since we can no longer have our future “junior” firefighters visit our fire stations, we can always come to you!

“We will need to always be available for emergency responses and other related daily readiness activities like training, which simply means that nothing is ever 100% for sure, but each day we will accept a set amount of requests for our/your firefighters to come out and spread a little joy and happiness.

“Who knows they may ring the traditional bell, blow the air horn or turn on the red lights and siren, depending upon the age, and/or enthusiasm and reception from the crowd or groups they get.”

To schedule a “fly by,” go to the fire district website. In the upper tool bar click on the How do I? tab, go to the Others column and click on the Contact Us tab for the pull down information form.
