His day starts off arriving on-scene of a Toyota truck with a camper that had rolled over on the very curvy highway road not far from the Jenny Lind Station.

The Chief of this mountain town is progressive with everything he does and a new heliport is on his agenda.
The Calaveras Consolidated Fire District is located in the foot hills of the Serra Mountains in Northern California where there are many lakes and streams in the 1st due area of this department. The Chief is young and progressive. He came in and sold off the older rigs and equipment to make his department lean and mean. Left with an older Pierce engine, he took some of the funds and just ordered a new Pierce soon to be delivered. You may have seen the shot of him in a meeting with the rep.
