CDF Registry Record

           

Welcome to my CDF/Cal Fire Registry History Page. My name is Tommie   Mobley , and this is a short Historical perspective of my time with the organization.  My Training, Assignments, Calls, Incidents and Adventures that I recall as vivid memories.   My co-workers and friends often called me Tom .

Favorite Assignments :  

My Favorite would be Sta.51 and Arnold sta.

 

Most Interesting Calls :  

I suppose it would the Old Gulch Fire of August 1992. I lived just about 2 miles from the Arnold station. About 20 miles away, in San Anadreas, a fire started that took off like a bat out of Hell. After almost a week of fighting this thing, I am over at my house trying to keep the fire from getting to it. I don’t know how we did it but we were able to stop it on Hwy 4 just before it got to our house. Boy was I sweating it on that one. ┬áThe thing was, we had just moved there from Auburn 2 weeks before!

 

My thoughts about my time with CDF and some Comments for those considering  joining  CDF/Cal Fire :  

I had a great 25 years and lots of good and some not so good memories but I wouldn’t have picked any other profession or group of firefighters to work alongside.
