September 2014 – Ebbetts Pass Fire District
A Message From Fire Chief Michael Johnson,
It is an honor reporting for duty as the Fire Chief of Ebbetts Pass Fire District as of September 8th. As a new employee for Ebbetts Pass Fire District I am learning all about our Emergency Response and Administrative duties from the excellent staff of EPFD. For the past 10 years I have worked in Las Vegas Nevada for Clark County Fire Department, nearly half of that time as an Assistant Fire Chief. I look forward to serving the residents and visitors of our Fire District well into the future. In addition my family and I now reside in Arnold, where we are excited to call home!
Going into the Fall Season I would like to remind everyone of a few safety tips. As the daylight hours become less and it gets dark earlier, be aware that pedestrians are more likely walking after dark and harder to see. Check your home’s heating system for operation before you need it, and don’t forget to make sure your chimney is clean and flume is open before use. Check your vehicle’s tires, lights, wipers, and battery condition to see if it is up to the task of Fall conditions. Don’t forget warm clothes/blankets in your vehicle as a precaution.
In addition to my introduction to the Fire District I would like to take a moment to acknowledge our outgoing Fire Chief David Baugher for his excellent service. Chief Baugher has continued a high level of Fire and Emergency Medical Service for our communities within the District. Chief Baugher served as Fire Chief here at Ebbetts Pass for over 6 years. Chief Baugher has and continues to provide me with tools and knowledge to be successful in my position as Fire Chief. Chief Baugher we appreciate all of your contributions to this Fire District; you have been a great leader to our organization. Thank you Chief Baugher! Enjoy your fall season and if you have any questions, please give us a call at 795-1646.
Respectfully, Michael Johnson, Fire Chief
