Thursday night the veterans of Valley Center’s very first volunteer fire department held a reunion at Fire Station No. 1 while they remembered the old days. Bob Tousley, one of the band, said, “We told a lot of what we in the navy used to call ‘sea stories.” It has been 40 years since the department was created. It evolved into the Valley Center Fire Protection District.
