January 31, 2019 (Julian) – Jeromes Furniture Warehouse surprised Julian's & Cuyamaca's firefighters with five brand new reclining chairs for the lounge at Station #56. Now after fighting fighters and saving lives, firefighters can put up their boots and relax in comfort.

Battalion Chief Mike Van Bibber voiced gratitude for the donation, stating,  "Julian Cuyamaca Firefighters offer our sincere thanks to Jerome's Furniture Warehouse. The good people at Jerome's learned that we were in need of new chairs in the fire station. They gladly took the opportunity to assist Julian and Cuyamaca's fire department, the last volunteer fire department in the County. Thank you Jerome's! Your act of kindness embodies the spirit of community and giving. We are humbled and grateful.”
