CAL FIRE San Diego County Firefighters of Local #2881

It has been an extremely busy and somber couple of months for the Honor Guard. We've covered services from one end of the state to the other, and assisted other agencies.

We were privileged to pay honor to:
Grey
Guerro
White
Geary
Hickman
Rosa
Gilbert

We've also represented L2881 and CAL FIRE at civic events in: Temecula, Costa Mesa, Sonoma, Gridley, Plymouth, Visalia.

We've also been across the nation to represent L2881 at the services of fallen heroes.

I hope I have not missed any names or locations.

We ARE California's Honor Guard

Way to many in such a short amount of time.

Its been a tough year for CalFire. Stay strong brothers.

An example on how quickly things can change with the conditions we are in.

Inmate firefighters escape the flames

An inmate firefighter crew thankfully makes it out of the flames safely as the #WestFire quickly grew in the area surrounding them. None of them appeared to be injured. #WestFire

That was close!!

Good job guys stay safe....

wow- thank you- all heros

That God you were all safe. God Bless toy and thank you for all you do.

I saw this happening on Friday as I was driving on westbound I-8. Close call.

Be safe out there!

,thank God

Lucky they had a lookout (think 10 standard orders,18 watch-outs, and LACES) What do you learn here as a wildland FF ? Even though you have a FWY as a safety zone, anytime you are building a control line downhill and there's active fire below you - Watch Out! ! So thankful they got out safely. Waaayyy too close! Remember, hand crews working without engine crew support, it's only the crew leader, and his or her experience and keeping your head on a swivel, that keeps these crews safe. This could have been another Loop-fire disaster!
