San Diego Fire Rescue Squad 56

On January 13, the long-awaited and much appreciated Squad 56 Fast Response unit began service in South University City. Mayor Faulconer and Council president Sherri Lightner have been strong advocates for providing South U.C. residents this needed service.

The site selected is a leased residence on the 3000 block of Governor Drive. Fire and rescue officials made the announcement at UCCA’s January 13 meeting. The two person team, a fire fighter and a paramedic, working from a specially designed vehicle, will be working 12 hour shifts, from 8 AM to 8 PM.
