I'm writing on behalf of one of our Dispatchers, Serita Basilio-Lewis, who is now on extended medical leave for cardiac-related health issues.
Serita was a long time EMT and SAR volunteer in
Marin County, and worked part time then full time for us here at the FPD
from October 2001 to April 2004. She left Marin for the east coast for a
time, then returned in March of 2011 and resumed working for us part
time, which eventually worked in to a full time position in May of 2013.
In addition to her duties with the FPD, she also created and ran a
non-profit organization in her home town that provides meals for
families in need. Needless to say, she is an extremely giving and
generous person, and asking for assistance is not an easy thing for her
If you can just send her a card and let her know you care:
Let me know and I will get you an address!
