Bob Robeson Awarded "Volunteer of the Year" by the Resource Conservation District

Bonita –

At the June 7, 2013 RCD Annual Awards Luncheon Bob Robeson was given the Volunteer of the Year award for his tireless effort working for the Eucalyptus Hills Fire Safe Council.  Bob is so active and engaging, you can’t help but become enthusiastic about the doing your part about keeping your home (and your family) fire safe…but Bob doesn’t stop there; Bob also assists the Lakeside Fire Protection District volunteering as their District Liaison Officer.  In this this position at the FPD Bob represents the Fire District and does a fabulous job in spreading the word of both defensible space and personal preparedness.  But wait, there’s more…Bob is also is assisting the new El Capitan Fire Safe Council with their process in becoming a full-fledged FSC by assisting with their CWPP and attending collaboration and other meetings, giving freely of his effective and insightful opinions and advice

Bob’s lifelong career was as a CALFIRE Chief Officer so he brings with him a ton of knowledge and experience about fires of the past, fire prevention and other fire service based experience.  In Bob’s acceptance speech for this award he said; “After my time at CDF I thought I had done a lot of good stuff.  But, I will tell you, my time serving my community as a volunteer is the most rewarding time I have ever spent.”

Congratulations Bob on your award and thank you so much for all you do for the Lakeside FPD.
