Last meeting we were presented a safety award by the State Compensation Insurance Fund for having 3 years without a loss time accident.
The information given on Tips for Baby Sitters, put on by the Sirens and Firemen for the Elementary School and High School was very well received and very well presented.
Time is getting short. June 12 and 13 will be here before we know it. There is a little work to be done at the training area. We hate to ask but it won't take much to put the area in order.
Fire Marshal Ross Turner is in Fresno attending classes this week. Dick Berrien will be in charge of training this evening.
So far the following departments have indicated they will be represented at the gas and oil fire school. Manteca 5, Santa Clara 12, CDF (Jone) 10, USFS Salyer 5, Western Fire Equipment 4, Fairfield 3, Carson City 6, Larkspur 2, Fairhaven 4, Willows (no number indicated), Santa Barbara 3, Sonoma no number, and Springlake Fire District near Woodland.
Would drivers of 121 and 15 please log runs, mileage, services etc in the log book as requested by the California Disaster Office, PLEASE.
