We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Santa Cruz Fire Department Firefighter/Paramedic Clayton Ogden. Brother Ogden recently passed away after a battle with cancer.
Santa Cruz Fire Local 1716 is hosting a fundraiser to cover funeral costs for the Ogden Family. All fire family and friends are welcome. The party will include: beer, wine, barbecue, beach fun, corn hole, etc. Event will takes place on August 7th from 5-8pm at the Harbor Beach next to the Crow's Nest Restaurant. A $40 donation is requested for each adult.
One of the ways we stay sharp on the various skills of the job is constant training. Recently, several members of your own Monterey Firefighters who have experience in welding and metal fabrication, designed and brought to reality this training center. With this training aid, companies can practice ventilation (commercial and residential), search and rescue, hose movement, hose management, firefighter down drills, entrapment drills, and much more. This project represents thousands of hours by department members, all while still running calls and completing the normal daily tasks. The training center is located at fire station 16 at the Monterey Airport.
Special thank you to Montrio's Bistro @montriobistro for allowing Local 3707 to hold our union meeting in the Parker Room, named after the city's first Fire Chief. The Montrio's building was Monterey Fire Department's first fire station in 1910.
