Alpine Fire Chief Bill Paskle Announces Retirement to Take Place December 30, 2019

ALPINE November 26, 2019 Bill Paskle, the Fire Chief for the Alpine Fire Protection District (AFPD), has officially announced his retirement from the District.

Fire Chief Paskle confirmed his planned retirement to the Board of Directors in a letter received and acknowledged at the November 19, 2019 regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting. Board President Jim Easterling read the letter aloud during the meeting and thanked the Fire Chief for his many years of service to the District. The official retirement date will be December 30, 2019.

Chief Paskle has worked for the AFPD for 31 years, the last 12 years leading the agency as the Fire Chief. He began his fire service career in 1987 with the Bostonia Fire Protection District as a volunteer Firefighter, the following year he was employed as a seasonal Firefighter for the California Department of Forestry (now Cal Fire). In 1989, he joined the AFPD as a Cadet Firefighter, and in 2008 became the first Chief of the District to rise through the ranks from Firefighter to Fire Chief. He also served as president, secretary and treasurer for the Alpine Firefighters Association.

During his tenure with the District, he initiated and oversaw the annexation of areas to the District, increasing the organization’s jurisdiction by 25%. Chief Paskle formalized the 4-person crew policy and was successful in decreasing response times. The Districts ISO rating, an insurance industry metric of a fire agency’s effectiveness on a scale of 1-10, improved under Chief Paskle, from a rating of 6 down to 2. Chief Paskle has served on several boards on behalf of the District. He served as president on the Fire Agencies Insurance Risk Authority (FAIRA) and the San Diego Fire Districts Association, and treasurer and secretary for the San Diego County Fire Chiefs Association. He also chaired the Board of Directors of the San Diego/Imperial County Regional Communications System (RCS) and served on the Board of Directors for the Fire Districts Association of California. He was Zone Coordinator for fire resources in the Central Zone of San Diego County, helping mobilize resources for emergencies throughout the state.

AFPD Board President Jim Easterling said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Alpine Fire Protection District we would like to thank Chief Paskle for 31 years of excellent service to the community of Alpine. Further we wish him a long and enjoyable retirement.” For retirement, Chief Paskle has no immediate plans other than traveling, spending time with his wife Dana and sons Eddie and Ryan and catching up on his honey-do list. He plans on staying active in the Alpine community and is a member of the Kiwanis Club of Alpine serving this year as vice president. The Board of Directors has not named a successor at this time.

Local Teen Trevor Barnes Story and Suicide Prevention Awareness 5k Run-Walk – January 11, 2020

We’d like to introduce ourselves, and tell you our story.

We are Dan and Mona Barnes and have been residents of Alpine for the last 23 years, raising our only child in this hometown.

On the morning of January 6, 2018, our lives would change forever. Our son Trevor took his own life.

For those of you who didn’t know Trevor, he had a big personality and would tease you at ever chance. He was funny and full of life. He loved baseball, playing video games and spending time with his friends. Unfortunately, Trevor also struggled with sports injuries throughout high school and found it difficult to cope with the possibility he may not be able to continue the sport he loved so much. These teenage stresses, combined with severe depression, resulted in suicide. He is gone forever and we miss him terribly every day.

Almost two years have passed now, but the support of our community has not waned. The love and compassion that has been bestowed upon us cannot be measured and we will never be able to repay the love and kindness of family, friends and even strangers who have supported us through it all.

To honor our son and to help prevent this from ever happening to another family, we started Team TB11. Our Mission and Vision is to promote optimal mental health through advocacy, education and support.

We would love your support and we are here to support you!

Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram, as we are always sharing helpful information about suicide prevention and mental health awareness. You can follow us @Teamtb11.

We would also like to invite everyone out to our Inaugural Trevor Barnes Memorial 5K on January 11, 2020 from 7:30am to 11am (Rain or shine!) at Lakeside Baseball Park (Lakeside National L.L.) 10030 Marathon Parkway, Lakeside, Ca. 92040. Registration is now open. Please join us! Together we can make a difference. You can find all the info HERE
