My name is Mike Allen, I’m writing this on behalf of my brother Casey Allen. Casey is a fire captain for the National Forest Service stationed at Pacific Valley just down the coast from you in Big Sur. On Tuesday, September 8, Casey was critically injured while defending the Nacimiento fire station during the ‘Dolan Fire’ incident. He and over a dozen other firefighters were overcome by the fire and they sustained a range of injuries – Casey was the only one critically injured. He was airlifted to a burn center in Fresno, California where he is undergoing treatment and recovering. Fortunately, he’s stable, and slowly recuperating but will require multiple surgeries. I’m reaching out to the Big Sur Community to see if there is anything you can do to recognize the efforts of Casey and his fellow firefighters who once again responded selflessly when Big Sur was threatened. As you can imagine, we’re looking to lift his spirits any way we can as he faces a long recovery. .
