The fate of the last fire volunteer department in San Diego County is up in the air as the county could soon take over the Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District and contract services out to Cal Fire. Last fall, the Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District Board of Directors voted to stay independent, then the county cut funding and a paramedic engine. That decision is now being reconsidered and as the back country strong group fights to save their local department. “Julian is special and we need to protect our historic town – our historic volunteer fire department. I don’t what is going to happen here,” said Pat Landis, former JCFDP board member. During a community meeting in Julian Monday night, a citizen’s initiative circulated while retired JCFDP Bill Everett talked about how local crews know the roads not out of town firefighters.
