On Thursday, August 2, at 7:30 P.M. our monthly meeting will be held at San Jose Fire Department's Station 16. The station is located on the southwest corner of South King Rd. and Cunningham Ave. at 2001 South King Road, San Jose 95122. Our host will be A-shift Captain Jim Blean.
Highlight of our meeting will be a walk-around of the new Engine 16. This is one of San Jose's newest acquisitions. Built by Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc. on a Spartan Gladiator Classic chassis, these rigs feature 430HP of Caterpillar power with a Hale QTWO, double stage, 1,500GPM pump.
Note: Since this is one of San Jose's older stations, there is no community room available for our meeting. So, remember to bring some folding chairs as we will be sitting in the equipment bay.
For those interested, we will meet at 5:45 PM for dinner at the new Macaroni Grill, located on a parking lot pad at the newly updated Eastridge shopping mall. The restaurant is located at 2226 Eastridge Loop, San Jose 95122-1465. See you there!
