Stolen Fire Department Vehicle

Posted: Jan 14, 2019
Location: Tracy, Calif.

Early Monday morning at approximately 1:15 A.M., a South San Joaquin County Fire Authority (SSJCFA) command vehicle was stolen from the scene of an emergency at Green Oaks Mobile Home Park, 2929 MacArthur Drive. The stolen vehicle is a red 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and had responded to assist at the scene of a medical emergency.

"We are thankful that our staff is safe and was unharmed in the incident. We are grateful to both the Tracy and Manteca Police Departments for their quick response and recovery of the vehicle. We are reviewing department procedures and taking measures to ensure this type of incident cannot occur again," stated Interim Fire Chief David Bramell.

The SSJCFA is a joint powers authority providing all-risk fire and emergency services to the greater Tracy community. Fire department command vehicles routinely respond Chief Fire Officers to emergencies to assist field units in managing incidents. The department operates several vehicles like the one stolen and service to the community was not interrupted during the event.
