Our 6/15/19 Fire Drill was very helpful and successful. Thank you to Craig Rohrsen for providing a presentation on the Lobo Fire. Thank you to Jim Gates for providing his delicious Nevada County Free Range Beef. We raised over $200 which will go into signs for our Temporary Refuge Areas.



We are dividing up our Firewise area into smaller patrols, these patrols should be a cluster of 5-8 houses. Each patrol should share contact information and meet and work together to determine their best escape routes and possible Temporary Refuge Zones. They should also work on projects together.



We have identified two possible Temporary Refuge Zones which are large irrigated pastures. 

The first is the Trabucco's Pasture across from Jim Gate's House at about 14560 Bitney Springs Rd . The second is on Personeni Lane 100 yards down on the right. Both of these fields have gates with signs currently. 



During the summer of 2019 each local patrol should continue to work together on projects.
