Time To Be Firewise

With mid-summer’s monsoon winds upon us (and rain hopefully following), I ask everyone to be super careful with fire. Our forests are critically dry and could easily become a catastrophic wildfire.

If followed by rain, devastating floods could happen. We’ve seen this time and time again, where homes are saved from fire only to be ruined by flood.

A wildfire now would make fire crews even more susceptible to COVID-19 with their close quarters and stress of fighting fire. Please, be “fire-wise” and call 911 if anyone’s playing with fire.

Wildland fires are an issue I’ll work hard on if you help me become County Supervisor.
