The firefighters of the Canyon Lake Fire Department recently established the Canyon Lake Fire Firefighters Association to represent the firefighters of the Canyon Lake Fire Department and to ensure that current and future members continue to be a part of the community through sponsored events, community involvement, and public relations.

The goal of the Association is to keep its members healthy and safe by providing a high-quality working environment and to provide stability for the future of the Canyon Lake Fire Department.

The vision of the Association is to work closely within the community, ensuring the continued support and endearment of the citizens and visitors, while prioritizing the members’ health and protection through competitive wages, benefits, and working conditions.

“The firefighters of the Canyon Lake Department consider Canyon Lake their second home,” Association President Brennain Gorter said. “The Association is another way for the firefighters to give back.”

The Association is made up of eight full-time Canyon Lake firefighters. Brennain Gorter serves as president, Cory Willis serves as vice president, Chico Humberto R. Sanchez serves as treasurer, and Nate Garcia serves as secretary.

The Association was officially recognized by the State of California in August 2022 and officially established as a 501(c)3 in November 2022. On March 8, 2023, the City of Canyon Lake recognized the Association with a proclamation.

The Association recently submitted an application to the POA for sanctioned club status. Some of the benefits of being recognized as a POA-sanctioned club include discounted use of POA facilities and common areas, discounted menu items for club banquets, use of certain POA equipment for club functions, advertisement for club functions and upcoming events, and club information and contact listing on the POA website.

The members of the Association will be participating in community events on their own time. The first event the Assocation will be participating in will be the Jr. Women’s Club Charity Golf Tournament on April 1.
