VALLEJO, Calif. — The Vallejo Fire Department has hired 15 new recruits in the past several months, thanks to a federal grant, and they're all getting physical fitness training for free at Dennis Brinson's Olympic Health Club gym on Tennessee Street.
Battalion Chief Ray Jackson said the department appreciates the help. Brinson says it's the least he can do.
