Santa Cruz Fire Department Battalion Chief Matt McCaslin retired after 37 years in the fire service on Wednesday. Members of the Santa Cruz Police Department along with representatives from every fire agency in Santa Cruz County were on hand for the event. Chief McCaslin worked closely with Santa Cruz Police during a number of high profile incidents including the 1989 earthquake, major floods and significant home and wild land fires. We wish him nothing but the best in retirement! Here is a photo from the event at Station 1 downtown.
