Suisun City Fire Crew Battling So Cal Marek Fire

A crew of four Suisun City Fire Department volunteers is protecting homes northeast of Burbank as part of the 1,272 firefighters battling the Marek Wildland Fire.

Firefighters Hank Seguin, Greg Renucci & Nick Lott along with Engineer Gary Hall took Engine 247 south as part of a Type 1 strike team from Solano County assigned to structure protection. The crew will be deployed for 10 days, and may be reassigned to another fire burning across the arid hillsides of Southern California as the need arises.

The Suisun City Fire Department also has a 4-person crew standing by to deploy the brush truck with a second strike team, if it is summoned. California Department of Forestry officials are balancing the need to control the blazes in Southern California with the very real risk of wildland fires breaking out in Northern California. >>Click here to link to CDF fire incident info>>

Suisun City is very fortunate to have such dedicated people serving in our Fire Department. Keep them in your hearts and prayers as they complete their dangerous missions.
