Some great video footage and fireground audio can be seen and heard in the above Stockton, CA Highlight video from 2015. It’s worth the couple minutes to watch. The video was posted by StocktonFireHistory and description is below.
“The Stockton Fire Department responded to approximately 40,000 emergencies in 2015, more that 300 of which were working structure fires. Considering that the Stockton Fire Department only consists of 12 firehouses for the 309,000 residents protected- this frequency of responses PER CAPITA makes them one of the busiest fire departments in the nation.
This video is was edited for, and presented at, the Stockton Firefighters Local 456 Annual Installation Dinner & Crab Feed on Friday February 26th, 2016. For more than 160 years, Stockton Firefighters have held an annual banquet recognizing the tradition, duty, honor, and pride of their profession. We would like to thank those who assisted in making 2016 Installation Dinner possible.
No training burns or video was used in the editing of this Year In Review. All video was captured on working emergency incidents.
Special Thank You to Brian Jones, Mike Pasqualicchio, Kevin Taylor, Art Ray, Matt Harris, Ralph Iberra, Matt Baker, Justin Wilson, Art Perez, Daren Drown, Colt Lee, and the many, many other that helped make this video possible.

From the beginning, the television show Sons of Anarchy was a favorite around the firehouses in our department. Taking place in the fictional town of Charming in the hills of San Joaquin Valley- SOA often referred to, or fictionally represented Stockton, CA. This is our ode to ‘Sons,’ representing the tenacity in which we work in our busy system.”
