Kids' Day 2014

Join the Kitsap community for a free, fun-filled day for kids and families on June 7, 2014 at Presidents Hall at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. Kids’ Day, fire and life safety event starts with a blast at 10:00 AM and runs until 2:30 PM.

This fun filled event is bursting with exciting and educational activities. Kids and families are invited to mingle with firefighters, law enforcement, search and rescue, Navy personnel, and community volunteers while picking up tips and resources about ways to promote health and safety. To celebrate the 29th anniversary of Kids’ Day, CKFR and the Professional Fire Fighters of Kitsap County, IAFF Local 2819 are stepping up to teach fire safety and treat kids to fun in a bounce house.

Kids’ Day originated in 1985 with Kitsap County Fire District 15 and was facilitated at Station 41. David Olsen (who recently retired) was the mastermind behind Kids Day. To accommodate the thousands of visitors to Kids’ Day, the event moved to the Kitsap County Fairgrounds where it is still going strong as a well-established community mainstay.

If you're interested in having a booth, or helping to sponsor the event, please call Ileana LiMarzi at 360-447-3603 or email her at
Honor Guard Events

You may have noticed that your 2819 Honor Guard was extremely busy last year. This year will be no different as its coordinator, Ryan Crosby, has been blazing a trail ensuring our local is prolific at many events. 

On June 1st they will be participating at the Washington State Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial. So far, we have eight members participating. Everyone is highly encouraged to attend this annual event. It is not Honor Guard specific. The specifics are: Capitol Building Rotunda, Olympia, WA. Service beginning at 1:00pm.

On June 11th they will be posting colors at Safeco field when the Seattle Mariners face the New York Yankees. This is a great game to attend and everyone is encouraged to make it over. Colors post at 7:10pm.

Anyone with questions can contact Ryan Crosby. 

Hope to see you there.
