Our early September rainstorm helped to get a little moisture back in the heavy fuels, and so far the fall weather has treated us kindly with no significant wind events.  We still have some weeks to go before the rains come and wrap up this wildfire season, but we are breathing a little easier. We are still not out of the woods for this year yet so please do not relax your vigilance and care!  NSCFPD will continue to do all it can to be ready.  It is imperative for everyone in our community to do what they can to prepare for future emergencies such as large vegetation fires, earthquakes, or extended power outages.    It is always a good time to get work done to prepare yourself and your home.  Here are some suggestions:

The COVID-19 virus pandemic situtation continues to affect us even though vaccinations have provided great relief and increased safety.  The community should know that your first responders continue to be prepared to respond to incidents involving COVID-19, and also are taking all measures possible to avoid contagion in order to continue to be able to respond for our community.  You can help by getting vaccinated, staying informed, following whatever physical distancing and/or masking orders are in force, and maintaining good hygiene practices.    Please see additional information on our COVID-19 page.

Be Well, and Be Safe!
