Chief's Message

While we have all breathed a sigh of relief after getting some early rain and seeing the threat of devastating large fires recede for a time, we know that it is only a temporary reprieve.  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.  Next summer will be here before we know it.  Winter is a great 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 Happy Holidays!

- Fire Chief Bonnie Plakos
