When SJFD paged Fire Associates, Don Gilbert and John Whiteside, with a slight delay as they were finishing dinner, met at Station 6 and responded in Fire Support Unit 2. They were joined on scene by FASCV members George Hoyt, Jerry Haag and Dan Wong. Cool drinks, CLIF bars and Blueberry bars were provided and later coffee was brewed at the request of several firefighters. During the dinner-time fire, Dan and George were tasked to pick up 22 burritos for fire personnel.
Just before breaking down the rehab setup, former FASCV president John Whitaker, and his wife Liz, arrived and assisted in loading up equipment back on FSU-2. They had been out of the area for the evening and stopped by the location on their return home. FSU-2 was back in quarters by 2230 hours.
