New “El Cajon Fire History Museum” Opens Saturday At Parkway Plaza In El Cajon

The City of El Cajon will soon have its own fire museum! It’s been several years in the planning, but retired El Cajon Fire Chief Ed Jarrell’s dream of having a fire museum will soon be a reality! The El Cajon Fire History Museum & Learning Center will officially open this Saturday, July 18 with a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. at the Parkway Plaza Mall located at 415 Fletcher Parkway. The former fire chief will be joined by local officials for this special ceremony.

For many years, Ed Jarrell wanted to provide a museum on the history of firefighting in El Cajon, hoping to inspire youth to pursue a fire career and to provide safety education to those who visit the museum. Children will have their own “Kids Corner” with coloring and reading activities.

In his quest to build a museum, Chief Jarrell has acquired a large collection of firefighter memorabilia and photos that will be on display at the museum, giving a chronological look at firefighting through the years in El Cajon. The museum is located on the west end of the mall between Sears and Dick’s Sporting Goods, and will be open Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

For more information, or to be a contributing sponsor, please stop by the museum on or after July 18, or call (619) 441-1737.
