heavy rescue - san francisco fire department


On June 2 2011, two San Francisco firefighters, Vincent Perez and Anthony Valerio, were killed in a house fire.­ It was the San Francisco Fire Department's deadliest call in 65 years.­

On June 10th 2011, a funeral procession of about 500 firetrucks from all over California, escorted by motorcycle Police, carried the fallen firefighters from St Mary's Cathedral to the cemetery.­ I took this photo at this event.­
