The San Gabriel Fire Department is perfecting a rescue plan to save people who may fall into one of the dozen concrete-walled washes that snake across the San Gabriel Valley carrying rainwater from the foothills to the Rio Hondo and San Gabriel rivers. "Our flood-control channels are all vertical-wall channels," said Fire Chief Gene Murray, pointing out the difficulties of freeing someone caught in water rushing down the steep-walled washes.

Even though the Citizens for Responsible Development leadership group has changed since the election, their No. 1 leader and primary spokesman, Gregory O'Sullivan, is still active. But why has Gregory O'Sullivan, from a leadership standpoint, not seen fit to decry the unacceptable conduct of new Councilman Frank Blaszcak, a person whom he vigorously supported for election, a person who in the five months since his election has repeatedly abused his elected post and embarrassed the city of San Gabriel, so much that Blaszcak is now the subject of a voter recall.

Davee Hazama has wanted to be a firefighter since he was 12. "I was in awe of the firefighters when I toured the station as a kid," he said of his hometown Fire Department in San Gabriel. "I was only as high as the wheel of the firetruck." Nearly two decades later, after a career change, some strenuous physical training, two extra years of schooling and service as a volunteer fire cadet, Hazama is finally a firefighter--one of the few Asian Americans who hold that job in Los Angeles County.

A suspected arsonist has set 11 cars on fire in the San Gabriel Valley during a three-week period, injuring four people, causing more than $1 million in damage to apartment buildings and vehicles and leaving at least one family homeless, authorities said Thursday. The early morning fires in Alhambra, Monterey Park and San Gabriel started in vehicles parked in carports beneath apartment buildings, and many spread to apartments.

As a brush fire raged in the Verdugo Mountains above Glendale and Burbank earlier this month, San Gabriel Fire Department Capt. John Hostetter pointed to the principal source of worry on the evacuated street he had come to protect. It was a wood-shingled roof--tasteful, a tad rustic, and perhaps, if untreated with modern fire retardants, the riskiest feature for a home in a fire hazard area.
