MONTEREY FIREMEN'S CHARITABLE ASSOCIATION ANNUAL TOY DRIVE
Monterey, CA – The Monterey Firemen’s Charitable Association, a nonprofit organization comprised of members of Monterey Fire Department, is now accepting donations of unwrapped NEW toys for its annual Toy Drive to assist families who are not able to provide gifts for their children this holiday season. Presents will be delivered to families in need December 16 and 17.
The City of Monterey received $377,000 from the California Office of Emergency Services (OES) last week, specifically to reimburse for the Monterey Fire Department’s response to the Soberanes Fire.
The Monterey Fire Department is resuming conducting fire prevention inspections in the City of Pacific Grove. The Department has recently hired three part -time inspectors to assist with this effort. Inspections will be conducted at multi -family residential buildings, schools, care facilities, and businesses. Emphasis will initially be on the residential buildings as those pose the greatest risk to the safety of people.
The Monterey Fire Department is adding new members to its ranks. Nine firefighter recruits will start an academy on January 9, 2017, to fill existing vacancies and several added positions. This group represents some significant achievements for the Department as it is the largest and most diverse group of Firefighter Recruits ever hired by the City of Monterey. “I am proud of the fact that we were able to find a highly qualified group of recruits,” said Chief Panholzer.
