Lodi Fire Supports Stockton Fire During Tragic Loss of Captain
Early Monday morning a Stockton Fire Captain, Max Fortuna, was killed on the line of duty. Chief Johnson was contacted and responded to Stockton to assess their needs and implement a plan to assist with station coverage and the logistical needs of a line of duty death. Engine 2031 responded to Stockton and was placed at Station 2 to fill the immediate need. Station 2 was the company involved in the tragic incident. A plan was developed to allow for all SFD crews to be off duty for 48 hours to assist with their grieving process. Lodi Fire, Modesto Fire, South County Fire Authority, Sacramento City Fire, Sac-Metro Fire, Cosumnes Fire, Manteca Fire, and Manteca Lathrop Fire assisted with this coverage. Lodi Fire will be participating in Captain Fortuna’s celebration of life on Tuesday (February 8). Please keep the members of the Stockton Fire Department in your thoughts and prayers.
