Chief's Message

"Fire season" is upon us with a vengeance.  Unfortunately, the long-term weather outlook does not give us much hope of relief any time soon.  It is imperative for everyone in our community to do what they can to prepare for the possibility of vegetation fires and extended power outages.  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 the physical distancing and/or masking orders, and maintaining good hygiene practices.    Please see additional information on our COVID-19 page.

Even though the outlook for another season of destructive wildfires is grim, if we are prepared we will get through this together.

Be Well,

- Fire Chief Bonnie Plakos
