On Tuesday December 10th the Santa Barbara City Fire Department donated a retired fire engine to the Allan Hancock College Fire Technology program. The 1984 Mack fire engine provided faithful service for many years from its assigned home at Station 7 on Stanwood Drive before moving to Station 3 on East Sola St. In addition to responding to local EMS and fire calls for almost 30 years, apparatus #277 participated in major wildland fires, most recently defending homes on Rincon Vista and Las Alturas Rd. during the November 2008 Tea Fire.

Fire agencies throughout Santa Barbara County and beyond, have benefited from the fire academy training that Allan Hancock College provides. Over 50% of the firefighters currently employed by the Santa Barbara City Fire Department are graduates of the Allan Hancock Fire Academy and many have served as instructors in various capacities. The Santa Barbara City Fire Department appreciates the value of education and hard work is proud of its collaborative relationship with Allan Hancock College.
