Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) truck 9524 recently responded to a reported water leak in a residence, where crews found a broken water line, water damage, a loss of running water and a resident unable to manage the costly repairs.
CCFR crews got to work cleaning the residence and affected contents, but felt strongly that they needed to do more for this resident, who would not be able to care for her special needs child without running water. They made a few phone calls and soon a volunteer with the Central County Community Assistance Program REHAB 95 unit — who also happened to be a licensed plumber — came to the rescue, fixing the leak and restoring the resident’s water.
This volunteer selflessly gave of his time and materials on a Sunday afternoon to ensure that this resident had running water returned in a timely manner, at no cost to her or the District. We commend our CCFR crew members and the REHAB 95 unit for exemplifying our District commitment to working together to keep residents safe.
