It is an exciting time of the year here in Ebbetts Pass Fire District with so many residents and visitors enjoying all our beautiful area has to offer from stunning views to summer outdoor recreation such as fishing, camping, hiking, bicycling, and special events. As an organization we will be participating in the annual Arnold Independence Day Parade on the 7th of July, then joining our very own Ebbetts Pass Firefighters Association for a community BBQ in Oak Circle that afternoon.
As always, our core mission is the safety of our community and visitors. One of the programs we have here at Ebbetts Pass Fire District that helps us meet our mission is the “Life Vest” Program. If you need to borrow a life vest for a day of water activities in our area, come by our Station 1, 1037 Blagen Road.
Along with the summer activities, we are challenged with the threat of wildfire season. Please be extra cautious this fire season with any ignition types such as outdoor cooking, warming fires, and no fireworks of any kind. Defensible space is critical for defending your home and the spread if fire occurs–thank you to all the community members who have completed their clearing.
We hope to see all of you soon!
Fire Chief, Mike Johnson
