Strike Team deployed to Sonoma County fire
Submitted By Aisha Knowles, Alameda County Fire Dept
On May 1, a strike team comprised of 22 firefighters from throughout Alameda County was called to assist in firefighting operations in Sonoma County. Strike Team OES 2870C is assigned to the "Yellow Fire" in Sonoma County. The following fire departments have provided personnel as part of the County-wide response: Alameda County (2 Engines), Fremont (1 Engine), Hayward (Strike Team Leader, Strike Team Leader Trainee & 1 Engine) and Livermore-Pleasanton (1 Engine).
Despite deploying resources to help gain control of the Yellow Fire, daily staffing at fire departments throughout Alameda County remains constant, and normal operations and standard response are intact. The costs produced as a result of this deployment are reimbursable by the state.
