CSFA President's Message

A productive CSFA Conference showcases the best of CSFA

As I write this we have just concluded CSFA’s 95th annual Conference. This great Conference was held in Healdsburg, in the heart of Sonoma County wine country and co-hosted by Geyserville and Healdsburg Fire Departments. Special thanks to Northern Director Joe Stewart and to all of the local firefighters who came out and helped run a truly enjoyable event, and to the K Street Consulting team too.

The Conference was named in honor of past President Bob Hamilton who was truly deserving of the honor. The Tom Garner Member of the Year Award went to CSFA Pipes and Drums leader Bill Hoffman, who was also elected CSFA Historical Society Chair.

We welcome Auburn Fire Department Division Chief Tom Carlisle to the CSFA Board as a Northern Division Director. Former Northern Director Matt Epstein will chair the Legislative Ad Hoc Committee, and he will be working with the PAC committee chaired by Vern Losh as we gear up for a productive Legislative year in Sacramento.

Finally a big thank you goes out to the Peterson Family Winery for the CSFA labeled wine. Buy a bottle or a case via the CSFA website. This tasty wine makes a great gift too!

Stay Safe,

Mike Shrout CSFA President
