Fire Season Tips:
As this is the start of fire season we want to remind the public of a few safety tips. If you are in the vicinity of ANY fire, please MAINTAIN SITUATIONAL AWARENESS--it could save your life. If you are in imminent danger, DO NOT WAIT for Evacuation Orders--LEAVE IMMEDIATELY.
 
 
 
If you are in a Pre-Evacuation Notification situation, take precautions to protect your family and pets. This the time to pack and prepare for immediate departure. If the conditions deteriorate you will need to leave immediately. You will not be allowed back in until the danger has passed.
