CAL FIRE San Diego transitions to lower staffing levels


Last updated 12/20/2007 at Noon

San Diego County – With two recent fall storms dropping significant rainfall throughout the county, reducing the fire danger, CAL FIRE San Diego lowered the staffing levels on Monday, December 17, 2007.

18 state operated stations will remain open in the wild land urban interface, covering 18 engines with 3 firefighters per engine. Two San Diego County Sheriff’s Helicopters will be covered by CAL FIRE, one with a fly crew. At the Ramona Air Attack Base, two Air tankers and one Air Tactics Plane will be available for dispatch.

Normally CAL FIRE would have gone to this staffing level on November 1, but due to the lack of rainfall and the extreme fire danger, they remained fully staffed until the rains lessoned the danger.
