2013 Annual MDA Fill-The-Boot

September 24 & 25, 2013 0800-12 noon

Mark your calendars and please plan on helping out for this once-yearly event.

We have pledged to raise $8500.00 this year.  We have been challenged by many federal and San Diego locals and we stand by our goal amount!! 

Based on previous years, we will need 8 volunteers each day for about 3 hours each day to achieve that goal.

I will be making a list of volunteers; MDA will be visiting  our stations soon.

Remember Firefighter Mike Lee

We are sad to announce that Firefighter Mike Lee of Engine Company 2 passed away unexpectedly on July 22, 2013

Firefighter Lee collapsed suddenly while walking with his son near their home. He was just 44 years old. 

Mike gave almost 25 years of his life in service as a firefighter. He also gave of his spare time as a member of the Department's Honor Guard and as the caretaker for our vintage Seagrave ladder truck, maintaining it and driving it in parades and other public events. 

His fellow firefighters are now helping his family coordinate services, which will take place next week.  It is fair to say that he was one of the kindest and gentlest individuals among us, and a loyal friend. Godspeed, Mike
