CAL FIRE Firefighters Local #2881 – Serving the Professional Firefighters in San Diego County
The 10th District of CAL FIRE Firefighters of Local #2881 is made up of nearly 500 firefighting members operating out of over 45 Fire Stations and facilities. Our members staff CAL FIRE All Risk Fire Engines, Municipal Paramedic Engines, Ladder Trucks, Command and Support Vehicles, Paramedic Transport Ambulances, Fire Rescue Helicopters, Urban Search and Heavy Rescue Units, Water Rescue Units, Brush Patrols, Water Tenders, Fire Crew Carrying Vehicles and Air Coordination Aircraft. Every aspect of the County Fire Operation in San Diego has members from Local #2881 involved, providing professional service. We are the Firefighters of San Diego County Fire, the Deer Springs Fire Protection District, the Ramona Fire Department and the Yuima Municipal Water District.
Local #2881 – 10th District officers work hard everyday to ensure that we protect our members wages, working conditions and benefits. In addition, we stay active in local politics that deal with fire protection in San Diego County. We ensure that our members are represented as the world class firefighters they are. The County has seen tremendous growth in Fire Protection Services and has invested over $450 Million Dollars over the last 10 years. This dramatic increase in funding, infrastructure and staffing has been balanced with an open door relationship with our CAL FIRE San Diego County Fire Management Team, ensuring #1 that the needs of those we service comes first.
They are always training so they are always ready. That’s why CALFIRE is California’s Fire Department. #StrengthInUnity #calfirelocal2881 #teamwork #CALFIREservingCA #FirstResponder #AllRisk #Repost @calfiresandiego ・・・ Preparation isn’t only about wildfire or evacuations. CAL FIRE firefighters have to be ready to respond to any incident regardless of the type or location. Today, the firefighters at Station 12, located in the Deer Springs Fire Protection District, are practicing their low angle rescue skills. Frequently, Sta. 12 uses this skill set to rescue car accident patients along Interstate 15 in the north county. #calfire #calfiresandiego #deerspringsfire #sandiegocountyfire #calfirefirefighters #firedepartment #californiafirefighter ...

Providing some more info courtesy Tom Gardner. Also want to pass on that BDU and Local 2881 BDU Chapter are engaged. Please keep the Allen family in your thoughts....
Just got word that Doug Allen, retired FPO II at South Ops and a long time San Diego FPO I has passed away peacefully Sat night at Kaiser Fontana. Doug was a fixture in San DIego for years, to see him climb out of his small Aspen sedan (he was very tall) was always entertaining. Of course he was also Dave Allen's dad. Cards & Letters to:
Doug was very special. He had the courage to mentor me as a Volunteer in Prevention and had me appointed as a State of California Fire Warden. This was at a time that CDF did not especially welcome volunteers. I had my POST certificate from San Diego County Sheriff's department and he taught me a lot about vegetation arson investigation. He allowed me to respond and get on my knees looking for origins. Always SUPPORTIVE and gentle in his corrections. I took his mannerisms with me as I became very successful in retail management. Thank You Doug and I will miss you!
Wonderful man who was always available to answer my questions. RIP.
Great man, even better investigator. RIP Sir.
Thoughts and prayers to the Allen Family.

Condolences to the Allen family
R.I.P. big Doug.
RIP Tom with prayers to family and friends
Rest In Peace Chief, I had the pleasure of meeting him while taking my Fire Investigation classes. After the first class I knew that I would never be the same. His old school humor kept me laughing the whole time and made me look forward to the next classes!
I will never forget him and am very glad to know him.
Sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. Had many good years both in Berdoo and San Diego County. He will be missed. My condolences to the family.
Great guy! Took the complete Fire Investigation series from him. Prayers to the family.
Biggest hands I ever saw in my life! Attached to a great man! R.I.P. Doug
Hmm. So the JCFPD attorney #1(Craig Sherman) files a lawsuit against the district citing a Brown Act Violation, loses the case the then give them grounds and go to court and Attorney #2 (Cory Briggs) to state the entire process must be thrown out...Could these attorneys be in cahoots, HA! Unfortunately, this is going down a long, dark road. Lock your doors, turn your lights on, be careful. There is also a question on who is paying for all of the attorney fees, voter fees, etc, Answer = THE TAXPAYER but its a reduced rate of $275.00. Unbelievable!
