Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

I am excited to announce the grand opening of our newest fire station on Lathrop Road and Madison Grove Drive.  Please join us on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 9:30 a.m. as we open the doors and raise the flag at our new Fire Station No. 4. 

Fire Station No. 4 will serve the northwest section of our city and allow for an improved level of service and response time for many families, businesses, and senior citizens.  The station will house one fire crew and has been designed to fit into the surrounding neighborhoods.

It is truly amazing to think that as many cities in California have resorted to closing fire stations during this difficult economy, the City of Manteca is in a position to construct and open a new fire station.  On that note, as the Fire Chief I would like to publicly thank our Mayor, City Council, and City Manager for making public safety a priority and keeping our city in a financial situation to make this fire station a reality.  I would also like to recognize and thank the outstanding city staff from various departments who went above and beyond in making this project so successful. This was truly a group effort and we are very thankful to all those who helped make this project possible.

Mostly, we want to thank you, the community, for your continued support. All of us at the Manteca Fire Department are very appreciative to have the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful community. It is a pleasure to serve you and you make it easy to follow our department motto of “Pride in Service.”  Hope to see you at our grand opening!

Kirk Waters, Fire Chief
City of Manteca
