Thank you, BSCFD
Today, September 30th, 2011 marks the final day of the Belmont San Carlos Fire Department. After several long months of negotiation and political wrangling, our adjacent cities have opted to run their own departments; Belmont entirely on its own, and San Carlos, in a “hybrid” contract model with Redwood City. The money saved is significant under this new model and San Carlos will retain several of its existing tenured firefighters. Belmont will retain many as well, while some of the more senior staff will now retire. The San Carlos Fire Department will see some new staff, and management of the department will be handled by the command staff of Redwood City Fire; Chief Jim Skinner and Deputy Fire Chief Stan Maupin. We wish them the best of luck and offer them our support.

Just last year there was a fire in the garage of my grandmother’s home. The BSCFD showed up immediately and could not have been any more professional. These dedicated individuals represent the very best of San Carlos.
