Oceanside Firefighters Association 3736

It is with heavy hearts that we hear of the passing of Battalion Chief Matthew Burchet. We mourn with the Burchet Family and our brothers from Draper Fire Department as they mourn the loss of one of their own.
The fire service is a small and tight family. Just days before this tragedy at the Mendocino Complex, Rancho Cucamonga Firefighters worked a firing operation through the night til the sun rose again- side by side with a group of firefighters from Draper, Utah. Chief Burchett was there with us leading his task force through the long and smokey night.
Conversations and hard work led to connections and our fire brotherhood grew to include new friends. It makes such news even harder to hear.
Rest In Peace brother Burchet.
