Luis Alfonso Magallanes-Molina was introduced to firefighting in 1993, when he worked for the California Conservation Corps. He was hired by CAL FIRE in 2002 and quickly became an asset to the firefighting community. Luis was a leader that was always committed to helping others and set the pace at his station with his hard work. Luis was a family man first, but was also devoted to taking care of his firefighting family. He was strong while battling the cancer that would eventually take his life. To this day, decisions are made at Luis’s station based on what he would have done. He died from job-related cancer at the age of 40.
