The Christmas season is upon us with lots of activities in the OTFSC service area of Squaw Valley, Wonder Valley, Dunlap, Miramonte, Pinehurst, and Badger. With the cooler weather, fire danger is diminished and we can be grateful that we not only didn't have any major fires, we also didn't suffer the blackouts that PG&E inflicted on much of the state.
We owe our good fortune to mountains and valleys that hold back the devastating dry winds inflicting havoc to the north and south of us. However, we do know that major fires, even without the driving winds, can occur in our area at any time. We need to prepare and then improve on our preparation.
Join the OTFSC for Cookies and Conversation, December 4th at the Library to hear what steps are planned for extending fire safety for property, neighborhoods, and foothill communities. We all live in this area because we enjoy the beauty and grandeur of the foothills and mountains. We need to practice good stewardship to protect that which we love.
OTFSC encourages everyone to come to Board and/or Public Meetings. These meetings are designed to inform the public of grants, local activities, and programs available to help insure the safety of property and residents.
