Fire Department - Bomberos Voluntarios
Cabo San Lucas Fire Department is a civil association that operates in
large part from the donations of equipment, supplies, or money by noble
and intelligent people wanting to invest in their security. This project
was made a reality because of good, hard work and each person who
contributed his or her own grain of sand.
Cabo San Lucas Fire Department was founded in 1982, when a single
citizen by the name of Gildardo Payan Azcarraga, hailing from the state
of Sinaloa but adopted by these lands, became aware of the social
necessities at that time. Among them was the need for a group of firemen
to look after the security of the citizenship; armed with a pail with
couple of radios, an old vehicle, the patio of a house as central, but
most importantly loaded with enthusiasm, he founded what today you know
as the Cabo San Lucas Fire Department.
The Volunteers sell shirts etc to raise funds for the department. Their booth is down at the docks where the curse ships unload. You can see in the back ground on the right side the ambulance that sits down here most of the time because of 4,000 people coming off cruise ships.
The on duty crew. They are true volunteers.
