This is a way for us to collect the living history of CDF / Cal Fire. Well, what is the living history of Cal Fire? It’s the firefighters of many years past, those here now and those yet to respond to the many rescues, traffic accidents and brush fires that Cal fire has been routinely handling for many years. But most importantly, it’s the people who everyday rush into harms way to serve the needs of the citizens of this great State. Those calls, those rescues, the responses have only a few stories been recorded, written down as simply a call time, a response time and a return to quarters. There’s a lot to be told about the sacrifices and risks taken by each member of the CDF/Cal Fire Team.
We are currently engaged in the recovery of many of these records, but the best part of the information is held by the firefighters who made that history. We are asking you to provide the best memory of these experiences, responses and hard fought campaigns here in this media where they can be shared and preserved. Many of the memories have all ready passed away. If you have a recollection of those who have gone before, we would encourage you to provide us with the info so we can include it.
Please look at the sample located on the Calfiremuseum Website to help organize your submission. Start by collecting 2 pictures, one from your youth,and one that isn’t .Begin by signing up on the new record link. The email address you provide will be the means for you to login and edit your submission. A few of us are not that computer literate! This is not that kind of test, send us an email and we can assist in editing your record for inclusion into the Registry. I hope that we have provided enough information with each step, but here is a review of how this should work. Don’t FORGET, your Picture.
You need one when you were a young and spry beginner, and another when your mature and experienced. (That was a nice way of saying that)
