Good News From The JCFPD
by Bill Everett
After several years of struggling with vexing problems, a sigh of relief could be heard at last Monday's District Board meeting. Two major issues are now well on their way to being resolved. First, the Board voted to purchase a new fire engine. It involved a trade-in of sorts. The engine which was purchased with the help of a sizable grant, and never put into service, was part of the deal to acquire this new engine which the Board believes is better suited for the community. As Chief Rick Marinelli noted "The truck is a short wheel base rapid attack 4x4, with a 1500 GPM, 500 gallon tank. It is capable of holding 4 people in a fully enclosed cab with room for addition of jump seats and a medical storage box should we convert it to a medic engine. This is a brand new 2014 model built by HME fire trucks and is being currently used as a demo. It is fully equipped including a generator, deck gun, foam unit, shelving, lights, ladders and hard suction hoses. Special features include central tire inflation (can adjust tire pressure on the fly) and a super rear axle which means only one large tire on the rear instead of duals. This truck is very maneuverable, has a very tight turning radius and is perfect for our narrow dirt roads, long driveways and windy highways. It will also will perform well in snowy and icy conditions. This is a state of the art fire engine, urban interface friendly and perfect for conditions in our local area. "
The new rig is being brought to San Diego for a new paint job with District insignia, and should be placed into service in early November. Second, the final hurdles appear to have been crossed in getting the new fire station on the fast track for construction. Approval from CALTRANS is anticipated soon, after which it should only be a month or so until the grading permit is issued. If all goes according to plan, a groundbreaking ceremony will take place in late October. Grading will start immediately afterwards. The building permit should be issued in late November, with a package going out for bids in mid-October. Announcement of the winning building contractor will take place in early November, and actual construction of the building should start early next year. Completion is still expected by next Summer.

The office provides professional services for military veterans and their dependents and survivors who are entitled to benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the state and other agencies. Funded with a grant, the program will allow veterans to communicate directly with Veterans Services staffers via FaceTime on an iPad. This will provide virtual face-to-face contact with those who can help veterans with needed services and benefits.
