Tony Hancock, RFPA President

Fire Department

 

 

Summer is almost over...at least as far as the calendar is concerned. But anyone who has lived is San Diego for any length of time knows that it usually doesn’t end until sometime in October. And if you were a firefighter, you knew it probably didn’t end until much later than that. Some of my grandkids started school on the 19th of August. As I remember, we didn’t end summer break at least until after Labor Day. What happened? I guess one of the advan- tages of being retired is that it allows us to experience summer any time of the year, provided we have saved enough money to get to a place where summer is happening. I went up to Alaska in early June. I got as far north as Fairbanks, where the temperature hovered in the mid-70s – even as late as 10:30 PM, and it was still daylight.

Chauffeur Positions

La Costa Limousine is currently hiring chauffeurs. We have found that retired police and fire officers possess all of the traits we are looking for in our team. We are interested in bringing onboard those transitioning out of public service and into the civilian community. Please contact me with any information that might help us get the word out to our local police and fire retirees who wish to stay active and earn a very competitive salary to complement their retirement.

I have just set up a gofundme page to help us underwrite the cost of getting Mike from Montana to San Diego for clinical cancer trial appointments. He started the trial at UCSD Moores Cancer Center on January 18, 2019 and the results are incredible. There has been nothing else to slow the cancer down in 20+ years. SD City refuses to help with a clinical trial. Thank you for any financial support given. It is greatly appreciated!
