AFD Firefighters completed a wildland fire safety class

The BLM taught us the S-130 and the S-190 wildland fire safety and fire behavior class this weekend. It was essential training for our Firefighters so that we can effectively and safely fight wildland fires. A big thank you to the BLM!

Can your house be found in the event of an emergency?

One of the questions that is asked when you call “9-1-1” for assistance is: “What is your address?” Many addresses in our area require that the caller give 911 detailed information on how to find their driveway or access road in order for emergency responders to provide rapid assistance. Instructions like, “Take the third driveway from the intersection and turn right and then go to the second left and we live in the blue house.”

TIPS FOR EVERYONE: Every home should have a visible address that can be seen from the street, day or night. If you don’t have a visible address, the fire department, visitors, delivery companies and many more may not be able to find you quickly.  Go to the tab “Fire Safety” and then to the “Street Address Signs” page for how to get your emergency street address sign.  AFD strongly encourages every household on our district to have an emergency compliant sign.
