********** STAFFING NEWS (11/4/2016) **********

This past July San Diego County Fire funded full-time Cal Fire staffing, supplemented by County Reserve firefighters at our fire station for a period of one year.

In October the board was notified that five back country fire stations are to be permanently staffed full time by Cal Fire, including Palomar Mountain.

In addition to full time Cal Fire Staffing and County Reserves, Palomar Mountain will have a paramedic assigned to our community station starting on or about July 1, 2017.

San Diego County Fire Chief Tony Mecham plan will be at the meeting Saturday, 11/5 at 9:00am to provide further information on this coverage and the new ISO ratings of 3 and 3X for Palomar Mountain. We hope everyone will attend this important meeting.

The Palomar Mountain Fire Department Board of Directors will continue to update the community with any further information.
