At the request of the Sacramento Fire Buff Club, several FASCV members recently met with two of their members for lunch in San Jose. In attendance were Nik Stroiney and Dean Handy from Sacramento, and Jerry Haag, Don Gilbert, and John Whitaker from FASCV. Sacramento brought along their Fire Support Unit 1, while FASCV arrived with FSU-1 and FSU-2.

It proved to be a mutually beneficial meeting as details were shared about our club activities providing rehab services for our respective fire departments. Of primary interest was a walk-around of the support units and comparing their capabilities.
After lunch, John treated the group to a tour of the San Jose Fire Museum. The Sacramento fire buffs were justifiably impressed with the extent of the Museums' collection of antique and classic fire apparatus!
