Businesses thank firefighters


We’ll join with the Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Organization, the Conference & Visitors’ Bureau and the Metropolitan Transit District with a hearty “thank you” to the more than 4,000 firefighters who saved the city.

The heroes of the Jesusita Fire are being honored with a celebration on May 26 from 4 to 7 p.m., and we’d invite folks from across the region to join us.

The job that firefighters from the Tri-Counties and beyond did in saving hundreds of homes from almost certain destruction is beyond any comparison.

Also outstanding were the roles played by utilities such as Southern California Gas Co., Southern California Edison and many other organizations.
