Neither Rain, Nor Snow, Nor Heavy Traffic Shall Stop A Fire Associates Response

Date and Time: 06-13-2014, 1543 hours
Agency: Palo Alto Fire
Type: Special Call
Details: Vegetation Fire. Jerry Haag was moving toward the temporary quarters of FSU-1 at the home of Mike Garcia’s mother in Sunnyvale in anticipation of a request for services by the Page Mill IC. Even with that jump, the unit did not arrive on the scene of the Command Post for nearly an hour. It was a long slog through rush hour traffic just to get to the foot of the mountain and then several miles of uphill curvy road. Most units had been released by that time but water service was provided to about a half dozen firefighters.
Agency Responders:PAF, CalFire (including air resources)
FASCV Responding Unit: FSU-1. Arrived: 1655; Released 1710.
FASCV Responders: Haag (driver),
