L2881 is pleased to endorse Glenn Miller for Indio City Council.
L2881 is pleased to endorse Chuck Washington for Riverside County Supervisor.
I am deeply saddened to report that yesterday CAL FIRE firefighter Yaroslav Katkov, 29, suffered from a medical emergency while on a training hike with his engine crew and passed away this morning despite the diligent efforts of medical staff. He is survived by his mother, father and brother. He was assigned to the CAL FIRE / San Diego County Fire Station 16 in the community of De Luz.

Yaro was airlifted by the CAL FIRE / San Diego County Sheriff Department helicopter and air ambulance to Temecula Valley Hospital in Riverside County in critical condition.

Yaro started his career with CAL FIRE on August 18, 2018 as a seasonal firefighter. Please join me in keeping Yaro and his loved ones in your thoughts.


I am directing the lowering of flags at all CAL FIRE facilities to half-staff and for all uniform personnel to shroud their badges until further notified.

Wendi Miller, Fire Captain CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department 

Help support our sister Wendi Miller in her fight with cancer! There are many unexpected expenses that come with fighting cancer. Unfortunately many of these are not covered by insurance. To help offset these costs an In-Kind fund has been established. The funds raised will help Wendi cover the costs associated with her care, treatment and recovery. Working together we can support an amazing individual who lives a life of service!!
