Good afternoon –

Please see below an email from Kentfield Fire Chief Mark Pomi to the Directors of the Kentfield Fire District in Marin County . The next time you see a Firefighter, Policeman, Medics, First Responders know that they go into “Harms Way” to serve and protect.

Acknowledge them, honor them and say “thank you” to them.

Our prayers are with the fallen Cal Fire Firefighter and with our own KFD strike team in Southern California.

God Bless, Be Safe Steven Gerbsman – Director Kentfield Fire District

Subject: Message From the Chief – MVU Firefighter fatality


I am very saddened to report that a firefighter fatality has occurred on the Thomas Incident. The incident is still unfolding, but in this world of fast moving information, it is important to me that only factual information be shared. To that end, I can confirm a fatality of a CAL FIRE Engineer from the San Diego Unit has occurred. IMT 4, CAL FIRE Local 2881 and Southern Region leadership are working to support the Unit and his family, who have been notified

More details will be made available as they are confirmed. In the meantime, please join me in keeping our fallen firefighter and his loved ones in your prayers and all the responders on the front lines in your thoughts as they continue to work under extremely challenging conditions.

Chief Ken Pimlott

CAL FIRE Director
