Public Information

The Public Information Section is one of our newest sections added to the Personnel Division. This section is managed by Caleb Garcia Firefighter/EMT. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers an introduction to public information officers also known as IS-29. After taking this course it has allowed him to enroll in a State course for Basic Public Information Officers. This is a two day course that introduces public information officers to the roles and responsibilities that this position will require.  This class and future classes will allow him to better serve the community with a better knowledge and understanding of a successful Fire Department Public Information Officer. We will be working on monthly communications through the Pinewood News, the Daily Sun and our website  as venues to keep the public informed of emergencies, press releases, and other current happenings within the Pinewood Fire District. Having a Public Information Officer will be a great asset to the Fire Department and more importantly to the community. If you have any questions please feel free to email Caleb at or better yet just come on down to the station.
