Employment Opportunity - Firefighters & Paramedics

Weed Abatement Program Updates
As of late April, all property owners with vacant lots have received weed abatement notices to mitigate the hazards of dry brush/weeds on their properties. If you are one of these recipients, it is imperative that you respond to this mailer, stating your preference to either abate the weeds privately or have the Districts' contractor perform the cutting service. If weeds are not cleared by the deadline stated on the forms, our contractor will perform the abatement, and the property owner will be billed accordingly.
Fire Season Begins!
With the arrival of a particularly hazardous fire season this year, it’s the perfect time to protect your home by creating a “Defensible Space” around your property. Defensible space is an area adjacent to your home where the vegetation has been modified to reduce the wildfire threat and to provide an area where firefighters can effectively defend your property. For more information on creating your defensible space, please see the publication "Living With Fire" at the link provided, or click the photo to the right of this article.
