SJVFD's Firefighters and EMT's on B-crew responded to multiple automobile accidents during their weekend shift. Nearly a dozen vehicles were damaged, many of them likely a total insurance loss.

Thankfully, there were no serious injuries or fatalities but our busy call volume serves as a reminder for everyone to buckle-up and drive safely! We want to see you at our annual Open House, not after an auto accident.
