Passing of Don Webster


I am sad to inform you of the passing of retired HUU fire captain Don Webster. Don work in our Unit for many year most recently in the Town of Paradise prior to promoting the FCB in HUU and most recently retiring from state service.


The service is scheduled for Wednesday June 14, 2017 at 11:00 am. at the Calvary Chapel located at 1888 Springfield Drive in Chico.


Battalion Chief Curtis Lawrie is the Department liaison to the family.


Requested resources for the service include one retired Paradise Fire Engine now used at Butte College that Don operated, one engine from the Paradise Fire Department and one CAL FIRE Type 3 from the Unit.


The honor guard has been requested and the family asks uniformed personnel attending to wear the dress uniform. Work response uniform is ok for employees covering apparatus.


Employee Support Service has already been in contact with Stacey and is working with the family.  The Butte Chapter of CAL FIRE Local 2881 is aware and working on their end including providing support to Stacey on PERS and other related items.
