Passing of retired Division Chief Frank Lewis

It is with great sadness that I share the passing of retired Division Chief Frank Lewis. He passed away peacefully, with his family at his side, at his home this evening.

Chief Lewis served the citizens of this great state for 53 years, exclusively in CZU. His focus was in Fire Prevention as he proudly served as a CDF Peace Officer. Later, he served as a Division Chief in San Mateo County, Ben Lomond Camp, and Santa Cruz County. He retired in 2000

In honor of Chief Lewis, am directing all CAL FIRE facilities in CZU, including contract facilities, to fly all flags at half-staff. In addition, CZU personnel will shroud their badges until further notice.

Please keep Frank and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
