IONE – On March 9, 2022, Fire Marshal and Emergency Services Association (FMESA) Second Vice President and CALFIRE Communications Operator Shelly Fontes spent the day meeting with new CALFIRE communications operators training at the CALFIRE Academy in Ione. Fontes conducted a new employee orientation which allowed her to introduce the new first responders to their union.
“Today we welcomed several CALFIRE communications operators to the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) as well as FMESA,” said Fontes. “I think it is important to know our newest members, help them put a face to the union, let them know who to call when they need support or have questions. These are a great group of public safety professionals and they are embarking upon a very rewarding career.”
CSLEA welcomes to membership, and wishes the best to: Jonathan Layton, Jena Capen and Carissma Felix-Ochoa.
