The Foundation is working towards a total renovation of the Fire House with a goal to bring it back to its original circa 1940’s look and make it Sacramento County’s first Fire Museum. This large scale project is going to require assistance from the community. If you can volunteer or donate to this project, please contact the RLE Foundation for the Future at 916-991-5929.
