It is during a time of need that we reach out to you and each of your locals to request support for one of our own.Firefighter Clayton Ogden was hired by Santa Cruz City Fire Department in 1999. He is currently our most senior ranking firefighter. Almost two months ago Clayton left work with a back injury that was thought to be the result of loading LDH after a wet drill. At the time, he was in so much pain that his wife and teenage child had to drive from Merced (their home town), to Santa Cruz to pick up Clayton and retrieve his vehicle. Since then, Clayton has battled with workers comp in an effort to secure an effective treatment for his back. All the while, his pain level increased and spread throughout his body. His wife, Becky, also noticed that he had been losing an excessive amount of weight.Clayton returned to the hospital last week to get a second opinion. It was at that time that doctors tested Clayton for, and eventually diagnosed him with, stage four cancer. Unfortunately, his cancer has metastasized from his GI tract, to his bone marrow, and eventually into his brain. He was informed of his ill fate on July 11. Clayton is currently in a hospital in Modesto, but the plan is to return him home to spend time with his family in palliative care.On behalf of Firefighter Ogden and his family, Santa Cruz Fire L1716 is reaching out to all CPF locals and associated fire personnel to solicit financial donations to assist with Clayton’s rapidly increasing medical bills, and to establish a trust for his three children.Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity.

Greetings everyone,I am reaching out to you all, in hopes that you can attend Chief Anchia’s retirement celebration on Saturday April 15. The Chief is retiring after 23 dedicated years of service to the Hialeah Fire Department. I had the pleasure of knowing Chief Anchia for all the years of his tenure, but just recently I have known him a lot more personally. As I served as Union President, I had the honor and pleasure of working with him much more closely. In just a short amount of time, we developed a great relationship both personally and professionally.On a personally note, I would like to say that I appreciated the time he would take to always explain his side of things. Regardless of whether we saw things eye-to-eye, he would look at things objectively and make his decisions on what was best for the department, and the body. I would just like to say “Thanks Chief” for all the opportunities you have provided to help move the department in the right direction. I hope to see everyone there.All the best,Mike Cofresi1102 PresidentPlease see attachment for RSVP info.
