Forever honoring the legacies of Assistant Chief Josh Bischof, Fire Captain Tim Rodriguez, and Pilot Tony Sousa.

Today, and everyday, we honor and remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice to keep California communities safe from wildfires and other emergencies. Please take a moment to join us in remembering the legacies of our colleagues Josh Bischof, Tim Rodriguez, and Tony Sousa who lost their lives during a helicopter incident on August 6, 2023. These three individuals will forever reflect what exemplary and selfless service truly means, and their leadership and impact will endure for future generations as members of the CAL FIRE family.
