Relaxing after the call

Call Fire Captain Candace Lefler and her crew (not pictured), Loma Prieta Captain Mike Coryell and Loma Prieta Firefighters Steve Jankowski and Lance Lougee (Photographer) enjoy a bite after a run on Highway 17, the fourth call of the morning. Loma Prietra Fire has been "hard" staffing its station and Jamison Creek Cal Fire Station (near Boulder Creek) since shortly after the Lockheed fire broke out. Cal Fire crews were called away to battle the 7000 acre fire in steep and rugged terrain. During situations such as this it is normal procedure for Volunteer crews to set aside their personal lives and staff stations and respond to calls for days on end.

It should be noted that the Loma Prieta Company staffing Jamison Creek Station had to prepare their own lunch that day.
