Our own Tamara Holmes was sworn in today as a Lieutenant in the Oakland Fire Department. This is a significant achievement as the process to get here is a long and difficult one. There are assessments, written exams, oral exams, interviews and tons of paperwork – all required to even be considered for promotion. Tamara put in a lot of long hours in addition to her multiple jobs (coaching, running a gym, metal working, lifting and oh yeah, saving lives) studying and preparing.
To those who know her even a little, Tamara never ceases to amaze and impress us. We are so grateful to know you and to call you family. Congrats, Lt. Holmes!!
