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.

He is now looking to assemble a very necessary water-rescue team and the gear nessassary to keep his community safe. As you will see, the Argo Adventure amphibious vehicle is perfect for this rescue on the Calaveras River.

In a previous show, you saw Battalion Chief Olsen leaving the station to meet  with his Incident Command Group in the Angeles Forest in Southern California. In the Lake Fire, we meet up the Chief, the team and check out the Air Ops.
