You can have the best of both worlds with YES ON MEASURE A in Julian and Cuyamaca
Yes on Measure A means having both. It means you will have CAL FIRE San Diego County Fire full time paid staffing and the volunteers. The difference is the volunteers will also get paid and they will have to have met minimum standards. This is why the opposition is against it. They’re being held accountable. Don’t believe anyone who tells you that voting no means you get both, you don’t. I can assure you of this. I’m the lead union officer for all of CAL FIRE in San Diego and a current 22 year employee in a leadership position. MEASURE A = BETTER FIRE PROTECTION
