Soledad volunteer firefighter retires

Jose Perez retires from volunteering for Cal Fire


SOLEDAD — Local volunteer firefighter Jose Perez was honored and recognized for his service to the fire department and the City of Soledad at the last city council meeting on Jan. 8.

“The only thing that I regret is that I didn’t get the opportunity to work with him like I would have liked to,” said new South County Cal Fire battalion chief Josh Campbell.
