Alum Rock Park Ranger Conducts Rescue at Structure Fire

City of San Jos?’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department Alum Rock Park Rangers received multiple reports of smoke visible along the Dorel Road boarder of the park at about 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 12, 2017. Park Ranger Mike Peasland responded to the area in the park wildland engine to investigate. Upon his arrival Ranger Peasland discovered a working structure fire and updated incoming San Jos? Fire units, then began an initial attack on the fire to prevent it from spreading to nearby homes and wildland areas. After hearing neighbor reports that the home’s occupant, a 90-year-old woman with dementia, might be trapped inside, Ranger Peasland entered the burning house without hesitation to search. He initially located the family’s two dogs trapped inside and brought them to safety, then re-entered the house to continue the search for the woman until San Jos? Fire personal arrived on scene. Fortunately, the occupant was away from the house at the time of the fire. Park Ranger Mike Peasland’s professionalism, dedication to duty, and bravery represent the finest qualities of the park ranger profession and the City of San Jos?. For more information, please contact Justin Long, PRNS Deputy Director, at 408-793-5579.
