Mayor Jerry Sanders and fire Chief Tracy Jarman are scheduled tomorrow to announce that the city of San Diego has 18 reserve engines to be used during disasters such as the Cedar Fire.

Our own Will Carless reported in June that the department only had six — 12 shy of its stated goal — in this comprehensive analysis of the city’s response to the deadly Cedar Fire of 2003.

Carless will have an update soon on how the city was able to make the jump from six to 18 reserve engines.
