Firefighters in San Diego often have to fight canyon and brush fires without the necessary tools. Friends of Del Cerro learned of this serious situation after a canyon fire in the Adobe Falls area where we saw firefighters trying to work that fire with small garden tools instead of the proper brush firefighting equipment they needed. We have partnered with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Foundation to raise the funds to equip every fire truck in the City of San Diego with these vital tools. The Foundation has already secured a $10,000 donation from the San Diego Padres. Now we're asking the citizens of San Diego to donate the rest of the money to ensure that our first responders have the tools they need to safeguard us all.
