This comment was sent to STATter911.com from Bay District VFD Chief Shawn Downs:
I want to update everyone on both of my guys. One FF was indeed flown to PG, however he was released around noon today. The other FF refused trasnport on the scene, and is recovering well. I am very thankful for the outpouring support that the Brotherhood has shown for my members. For all of the phone calls, texts and the like, many thanks!
These two will no doubt be back on our appartus by weeks end! Stay Safe Out There!
