Firefighter Foster was transferred to Point Mugu Fire Department, where he served for two years before being assigned to San Nicolas Outlying Field.

His service has truly lived up to the meaning of the Department of Defense, Fire and Emergency Services’ motto, “Protecting Those Who Defend America.” Firefighter Foster’s lifetime career of leadership and his many accomplishments are indicative of his steadfast commitment and dedication to our community. As this chapter in his career comes to an end, I want to express my sincere appreciation for Firefighter Foster’s years of honorable and selfless dedication that greatly contributed to the success of the Federal Fire Department Ventura County.
