Mayor Jerry J. Dibble,

I wanted to write and pass on what a wonderful and refreshing experience to work with your city’s engine on the Ferguson fire. 

I work with the City of Chula Vista in CA as a fire captain. I found their skill and work ethic top notch.

We need more crews like this out here and we appreciate you sharing them in our time of need. Our resources were not able to handle the magnitude of work necessary and they were an important role in protecting one of our country top assets, “Yosemite”.

Michael Neal, Captain

Station 6
