  1. SAN DIEGO – Mayor Kevin Faulconer Monday appointed Colin Stowell as chief of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Stowell spent several decades in the department as a captain, battalion chief, deputy chief and assistant chief before leaving in 2016 to lead Heartland Fire & Rescue.
  2. Seems like yesterday he became our chief.
  3. "Arizona"? That's vague (though I've heard of "Central Arizona Fire/Medical" or some suuch, which is a merging of departments somewhere around Prescott, IIRC.) Where is this exactly? ETA: Oops. Indeed, Sun Lakes and North County have merged.
  4. That was a great video! Maybe just me, but it looks weird to me to have the only main rotator light be amber. They had some interesting apparatus back then, though. I was born in '75. It'd be interesting timewarping back to that year and being my actual age now.
  5. In a dramatic show of just how fractured the relationship is between the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and the San Diego Lifeguard Association, 76 of 102 permanent lifeguards voted to form their own department called the “Marine Safety Department,” and leave the Fire-Rescue Department. What would this do regarding, say, the Toyota arrangement? And overall, is it better for a lifeguard service to be attached to a fair department or does it depend? Anybody follow this situation closely?
  6. Love those light bars! Would like to see them lit up. Not sure about the pinwheels. They don't seem too effective, at least on YouTube.
  7. Time to update my Tatra avatar. Bummed to hear those didn't work out in the end.
  8. AMR Fire/Medical even?
  9. HAZMAT did come out but was released. Mainly toilet paper and such that ignited. One electrocution injury and another FF injury. Both treated and actually returned to scene.
  10. Ahh, OK. I have seen lots of red AMR's lately.
  11. How will this affect Rural Metro. I thought one owned the other. R/M has the current EMS contract here in San Diego.
  12. Very nice unit. I like water tenders in general. I can't make out the apparatus category over the number, though. Would it be "Water 44" or "Tender 44" (I like the unit numbers to be plain and big and bold. Like "WT44")?
  13. Today, while riding up the 163 toward Hillcrest, I saw a red ambulance with titles for "Zone 2 Rural Fire", and the CSA number (which I failed to catch). Does anybody know anything about this agency? I'm getting nothing on Google.
  14. Gotta be a member, I guess.
  15. I like the lighting on that. Is that the agency that used to be lime green with a blue stripe? I miss that, too.
