Local 1775 Firefighters Provide Relief to Haiti Earthquake Victims

Local 1775 Firefighters Pul LeVeque, Matt Cobb and Jim Clark are profiled in this month's CPF Firevision for their self funded humanitarian mission to Haiti to provide relief to earthquake victims. Their unusual acts of generosity have garnered attention locally and inspired a front-page article in the Los Angeles Times.
