Whew! The first rains have come, and we see the close of the 2020 "fire season" approaching. It has been a long, hard year. With the start of the rainy season we can take a breath and hope to find some comfort in the coming holidays. We wouldn't be us, though, if we didn't put out some safety reminders. If you have a wood/pellet stove or anything with a chimney, please be sure to get the chimney checked and cleaned.
The COVID-19 virus pandemic continues. The community should know that your first responders are taking care 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 staying informed, following the physical distancing and masking orders, and maintaining good hygiene practices. If we respond to an emergency at your home please do not be surprised if we keep our distance as much as possible, if we look like aliens in our "personal protective equipment (PPE)", or if we, if appropriate, try to move the action to an outside or more ventilated area. All of that is in service of protecting both your health, and ours. Please see additional information on our COVID-19 page.
Please make sure that you are signed up for any and all notification systems that can help you stay safe in an emergency. See our Emergency Information page for more details
We wish all of our community members a warm, cozy, and safe holiday season.
- Fire Chief Bonnie Plakos
