Car Break-In at Viejas Mountain Trailhead on Anderson Truck Trail – January 19, 2020

We were with friends, parked at the trailhead to Viejas Mtn on Anderson Truck Trail. When we got back to the trailhead, our friend’s SUV window was smashed and it was rummaged through. They stole emergency kit, knife, CDs, bag of clothes that I know of now. The glove box was rummaged through also. I have hiked the mountain for 19 years and parked in same place and never even imagined something like this. I am so sad for Alpine and embarrassed. We live here for the peace and quiet and sense of safety. It happened today, 19 JAN 2020 between 10:30 and noon. If anyone knows anything please let the sheriff know. It has been reported. . I have reported this information to the police.

If anyone saw anything, please let the sheriff know.  – Annie

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.
