COMMENTS ABOUT THE VISIT FROM THE FIRE ENGINE AND CREW


Everyone was so enthusiastic when the firemen and fire engine came at the last possible moment before the parade was to start; their arrival gave a great boost to the level of excitement. We were so grateful the crew… and engine… were able to stay for a few minutes after the parade. They were so kind to the children who came up to talk to them and patiently posed with them for many photographs. So much happiness was going around, it was a really good vibe and everyone there had fun.

I want to thank our Firemen for bringing an engine to head up our parade. They made it very special 🚒 !

I thought the Halecrest Parade was best ever!   It was good to see the “Top Vet,” Bernadette, cheerfully laughing and waving to the crowd!   Many “Crest-ers” put out chairs to visit, wait,  watch and wave the festivities along.  Very neighborly!

Now…my thanks to our magnificent Fire Department, so gracious and caring to complement our Halecrest Parade!

I am proud to have 2 sons helping the community, one a Garden Grove Paramedic/Firefighter and the other in Police in Washington.  I am very grateful for our firefighters all over our country and I know how difficult it is to take time … to participate in this event....  with that being said.. thank you very much!!!

We are very grateful to CMFD for honoring our neighborhood by leading the parade!  Their time is very precious while on duty, so the fact that they gave up some of their time to add to our festivities was incredibly generous.  Certainly, in a perfect world, we would love to never need their services.  But life has a way of throwing curve balls, so it's nice to know that we've got such a caring team watching over our city.

This next is an example of several who wanted to thank our fire dept. for everything.


Bob and I wanted to say how much we appreciate our Costa Mesa Fire Department. They do an incredible job and unless you've had to call them you may not realize just how awesome they are. Thank you to all Costa Mesa Fire Personnel.

Thank you to our wonderful firefighters for taking the time to lead our Halecrest 4th of July parade.  They gave more meaning as to what Independence Day is all about!  We need to keep them all in our prayers as these brave men fight these terrible fires. God Bless each and every one of them!

As soon as we heard the distant siren from the Costa Mesa Fire Department truck, we began to feel like little kids filled with excitement.  When would the fire truck be on our street?  We could hear it winding through the neighborhood and finally it was OUR turn.  Having the fire truck lead the parade suddenly turned this gathering of neighbors into a REAL parade.  Thank you to the firemen that came and to the department for letting us "borrow" the firemen.  To see the surge of neighborhood families that followed was a beautiful sight!  So many flags and people dressed in red, white and blue celebrating our country's birthday.  There was another by-product that we noticed.  With so much division in our country right now, it was so nice to see this little spot of Costa Mesa united behind a beautiful red, shiny fire truck.  Many thanks!
