Fire Associates in the News

Recently, John Whitaker, FASCV President, and Jerry Haag, a member of the Board of Directors, met with a reporter from the Santa Clara Weekly newspaper. The organization had been approached by Melissa McKenzie to do a story about the group's fire support operations. Melissa and her photographer were very interested in what they heard.

The interview was conducted at Santa Clara City Fire Station 9. Since the newspaper's circulation area is primarily within the City of Santa Clara, it was thought appropriate to meet at the station that houses our support unit that covers that vicinity.

The result of this meeting was a very nice, full-page article (with photos) that appeared in the August 18 - August 24, 2010 issue of the newspaper. If you live within the circulation area, check it out on Page 7. If not, you can read the article on line at this link: "Santa Clara Valley Group Helps Firefighters"
