nats: ambiancebut the thing that caught my eye was the amount of ride hail drivers using the compressed natural gas station as a way to beat the no u-turn and it probably wouldn't be a problem if it were maybe 1 or two cars but the fact is there are 1 or two dozen cars often flying though nats: ambiance however to be fair there was a few other illegal u-turns not uber or lyft related even a big rig ambiance which brings us back to the black minivan now sitting outside lot # 2 i was starting to believe it was just a lost tourist i mean who else would stop in middle of the roadway until the minivan returns again and pulls into lot number two so know we know why the uber stopped in the middle of the road to get to the other side there you have it new lots new bad habits looks like s f p d 's airport bureau will have their hands full .again in millbrae stanley roberts kron 4 news

is part of a bigger picture. that bigger picture is statewide mutual aid. california years ago realized the need to work together. teamwork is important to protect the community, but we have to do it the right way. we have a working knowledge and we can reduce the impacts of a small disaster, but we need the help of experts. pg&e is an integral part of our emergency response team. they are the industry expert with utilities. whether it is a gas leak or a wire down, just having someone there that deals with this every day is pretty comforting. we each bring something to the table that is unique and that is a specialty. with all of us working together we can keep all these emergencies small. and the fact that we can bring it together and effectively work together is pretty special. they bring their knowledge, their tools and equipment and the proficiency to get the job done. and the whole time i have been in the fire service, pg&e's been there, too. whatever we need whenever we need it. i do count on pg&e to keep our firefighters safe. that's why we ask for their help.
