Yucaipa approves new contract with CAL FIRE

The City of Yucaipa at their July 11, 2011 council meeting approved a new fire protection and paramedic services contract with the CAL FIRE San Bernardino Unit. According to City Manager Ray Casey, the original contract was approved on June 28, 1999. However, CAL FIRE and the city have been working without a formal agreement in place since June 30, 2005.

The new contract formalizes services through June 30, 2014. City officials say they are pleased with the service that CAL FIRE provides not only on a day by day basis, but during emergency events as well. Yucaipa Mayor Dick Riddell Says "I have always been pleased with the level of service we receive from CAL FIRE."
