IMG 0149The CAFD hosted a group of 4th grade students this week conducting a research project on what it takes to be a firefighter. The group met with Chief Schroeder and asked questions on required education, best and worst parts of the job, along with other operations concepts. We hope they get an "A" on the project!!!

The CAFD held its first annual awards ceremony during our monthly board meeting on March 18, 2015. The District recognized all promoted employees and presented awards for actions above and beyond normal duty that occurred throughout 2014 based on nomination by their peers. Promoted employees were sworn in with family members pinning on their new badges, and nominated employees were presented award ribbons for display on their uniforms. Employees, family members, and the co...mmunity celebrated after with cake and refreshments. Congratulations to all of our employees.
