Our condolences go out to our friends and colleagues at Cal Fire San Diego/San Diego County Fire.
From Cal Fire San Diego/San Diego County Fire: It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the passing of San Diego County Fire Authority Assistant Fire Marshal James Pine. In his nearly twelve years with SDCFA, James had an impact on not only every fire agency in San Diego County, but in fire prevention at the state and national level as well. Awarded Fire Prevention Officer of the Year by the San Diego County Fire Prevention Officers Association, member of the NFPA 1141 and 1142 Technical Committee on Wildland and Rural Fire Protection; James had a knowledge of the various codes and ordinances that was surpassed only by his commitment to sharing that knowledge with, and encouraging others in their fire prevention careers. James was truly passionate about what he did, and worked tirelessly to ensure the development of safe communities. If you have a memory of James that you would like to share, please feel free to comment on Cal Fire/San Diego County Facebook page.
