Message From The Chief

Chief Mike Johnson - s2

Fall 2016

Fall has arrived and we are experiencing all of the wonders it has to offer such as autumn colors and cool mornings. Our District is preparing for winter operations–preparing tire chains for vehicles, attaching snow plow to pickup, winterizing facilities, ensuring our response is optimum for winter’s weather challenges.

For everyone heating homes with woodstoves please ensure the chimney is swept and clean to avoid the possibility of a chimney fire. Continue to make certain outdoor cooking and warming methods are attended and adequate clearance from flammables is present.

We are excited for all the activities Fall brings to our area and the holidays that come along with it. Be safe and enjoy this special time of year.

Mike Johnson, Fire Chief
