FACTS ABOUT JCFPD Finances gathered from Public Information from an inside source.......
In the first 6 months of their financial year (July 1 thru Dec 31) they LOST a quarter of a million dollars, NEGATIVE $255,000.
Why? Because they SPEND way more than they have coming in (income).
As the auditor said, they CANNOT survive as a going business under current conditions (loosing the QQ vote to increase the benefit fee and hence their income).
In their FANTASY world, people will do work for free, give them equipment and repair equipment for free (it’s on their financial spreadsheet), and through the magic of grant writing, they FANTASIZE that there are organizations/government entities that will GIVE them money so that they don’t go bankrupt.
Their ENTIRE financial future relies on HOPE that they get a bunch of handouts (or play the lottery and win).
That make sense?

Another poor taste, classless post by JCFPD Backcountry Strong. With the road conditions and the fact that yesterday, CAL FIRE San Diego County Firefighters had a fire engine involved in a serious weather related accident in Deer Springs, this group takes the opportunity to assassinate the character and once again try to defame the fine men and women of CAL FIRE San Diego County Fire by showing an image like this. It is disgusting that we must lower ourselves to their adolescent level and even respond to these degrading posts in attempt to make CAL FIRE San Diego County Firefighters. This small group of men and women who no matter what it takes will attempt to harm CAL FIRE San Diego County Firefighters, by posting inaccuracies and kicking them when they're down. This is the work of cowards, this is the work of someone or a group who has gone far past their jaded agenda and will stop at nothing to ensure they retain their power over the Julian Cuyamaca Communities.A major benefit to having a locally controlled, custom fire department which provides structure fire protection and emergency medial assistance for the Julian-Cuyamaca area is that we own equipment that is best suited to accommodate to our community's needs. JCFPD's fire engines, ambulances, and rescue units are all four-wheel drive.

Not to pick sides but they literally said Engine 256, refering to the county engine staffed out of Julian station 56. Not the Deer Springs Engine 11 from the northern county geographical area that was involved in the unfortunate accident near Bonsall on Thursday.
Disgusting. We here in LA County have been helped so often by Cal Fire.
