Message From The Chief


August 2014 – Ebbetts Pass Fire District

Summer is in full swing as we have passed the half-way point of the season.  The Ebbetts Pass Fire District will be present at the Big Trees Family Days on August 16, 2014, and as always the Ebbetts Pass Fire Firefighters Association will be present at the Labor Day Crafts Fair held near the Hub in central Arnold.

The Fire District appreciates the caution our community has demonstrated during the prolonged California drought.  Please continue to be cautious and vigilant through the high fire danger present during the summer and in to the Fall.

On another note, at the Ebbetts Pass Board of Directors meeting held on August 19, 2014, the Board formally announced the hiring of Michael Johnson as the new Fire Chief.  Chief Johnson has moved into our community from Clark County, Nevada, and formally assumes duties on September 8.  It has been an honor to serve as your Fire Chief over the past 6 years.
