Thank you and good luck!

Good Morning Brothers and Sisters. I have attached an update from Chief Mecham.

San Diego Unit,

Preliminary results were released last night for Measure A.  The final vote will not be completed for a few days, but I do not expect the results to change during that time. We hope to transition the District as quick as possible to the County Fire Authority.    I have always felt this was in the best interest of the Community and that will remain our singular focus.  Service to the Community.

I want to remind everyone to stay on the high road.  This subject has divided a Community and we need to work to reunify and work to provide the highest level of Service to the Community of Julian and Cuyamaca.

If you work in Battalion 5, please go out of your way to reach out to the Volunteers, we want to welcome them to or organization with open arms if they choose to join our Department.

Tony Mecham

Unit and County Fire Chief
