FIRE CHIEF'S MESSAGE

Message from the Fire Chief


As Spring comes to Foresthill, so should the annual defensible space work begin. I have noticed some residents working on their properties and the removal of debris is underway by taking it to the transfer station or burning it. Please remember to have a burn permit and abide by the rules set forth; Be in attendance, burn pile size, clearance, and what materials are permitted to be burned. At the end of the burning, please make sure your pile is completely out. Even after some rain and snow, it may still be smoldering. We have had some winds lately, and that can bring the embers back to life.


The Fire District's Emergency Alert Radio system is about 75% complete, and testing will begin in a few weeks. Program Manager Rich Hercules (a community volunteer) has been hard at work in all facets of the program. We are looking at completing the AM radio station by June 1st . The radio station has been funded through grants and donations with a small contribution from the Fire District We would again like to thank Rich Hercules for his volunteer efforts and contributions made by Grants Hardware and Sebastian Communications through their combined efforts the radio station is expected to be finished under budget.


The Emergency Alert Radio Station will be used to advise the public of potential and occurring emergencies of District interest. It will also carry helpful information on community interests and events. This station will broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, at 1020 AM on the dial.


Our office is open for business Monday thru Friday. If you have business with the district please follow social distancing practices and wear a mask. Our fire stations continue to be closed to the general public.


In closing, please utilize our Web Page (www.foresthillfire.org) and Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/ForesthillFire/) for timely information, tips on Defensible Space, Go Bags, and other public safety information, as we strive to make ourselves better prepared for what Mother Nature presents us.


Stay safe.


Michael Ridley, Fire Chief
