Fire Station 63’s Annual Pancake Breakfast

Get your flapjack on May 25 a.m. to 1 p.m.

By Keldine Hull

Fire Station 63’s Annual Pancake Breakfast is back Saturday, May 25 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Hosted by the Rotary Club of Playa Venice, the public event benefits Los Angeles Fire Department 63, located at 1930 Shell Avenue. With over 35,000 eggs cracked and ready to go, firefighters and members from the rotary club will be serving hundreds of breakfasts consisting of pancakes, sausages, eggs, and orange juice.

According to Fire Fighter Alfred Kuzichev, “The Pancake Breakfast is in support of the community here with the Rotary Club and other local groups that support the fire station and the neighborhood.” The Rotary Club of Playa Venice, known for their service to the community, will be collaborating with Habitat for Humanity Greater Los Angeles to build 10 homes for deserving families.

The annual event, open to the public, is a long- standing tradition and marks a perfect opportunity for the community to learn more about the fire department and fire safety. Kuzichev explained, “We’re going to have other activities for the neighbors to come into the fire station, take a look around, look at the fire engines and the fire trucks, and better inform and educate themselves about the fire department. Most of the time, people just see this building on the side of the street. They don’t ever really see what goes on inside. This is their chance to get to know us and for us to get to know them.”

Kuzichev added, “We’re also going to be testing smoke detectors for anybody in the neighborhood whose smoke detector is not working or it’s been a long time since they checked it out. And we’re answering any questions they might ask about fire safety- anything and everything we can do to just sort of leave them with a positive experience. We’ll also be talking to anyone who’s possibly interested in a career in the fire service.”

In addition to serving breakfast, there will be plenty of other activities for the community to enjoy including a bounce house and coloring table for children, photo booth, and plenty of great music. Kuzichev added, “It’s sort of our one day a year to meet and greet with our neighbors and the community. It’s a long day but it’s very fulfilling and rewarding.”
