The fun has officially begun for FST Rick Flores of Batalion 6 and Lt. Steve Mendez of Fire Station 24 B-shift.
After serving their community for more than two decades, both have decided to put away their fire gear and enjoy some much deserved R&R time– indefinitely.
On behalf of everyone in the EPFD, thank you for your years of service and may this next chapter of life bring you endless time to do the things you love!
Rick Flores served 28 years.
Steve Mendez served 26 years.
