CAL FIRE BDU Attends Weekend Events

The San Bernardino Unit of CAL FIRE was again involved in several public safety events over the past weekend. On Saturday, October 23rd, Engine 3559 and crew from Devore attended a public safety event sponsored by the Home Depot in the city of Fontana. The firefighters handed out safety information to the adults and fire safety coloring books and Smokey Bear comic books to the kids.

Meanwhile, over in the city of San Bernardino, engine 3569 and crew from Yucaipa were participating in a public safety event sponsored by Sears and located at the Inland Center Mall. Not only did the firefighters hand out lots of fire safety material, but Smokey Bear himself was there much to the delight of children and adults alike.

To end the weekend, CAL FIRE was invited to have a display of equipment that included engine 3566 and a Crew Carrier. The Sunday event was the Chino Valley Fire Muster and Chile Cookoff. A number of Explorer posts participated in the muster events, while the chile was plentiful and varied. CAL FIRE was honored to be asked to participate in these public events in order to provide safety education and information for the public.
