What's New - May 2015 Minimize
Annual Pancake Breakfast – May 10th 

Save the date! Our local 3535 Firefighters are holding their annual Pancake Breakfast on Mothers Day, Sunday May 10th, from 7:30 am to 11:30 am, at the La Selva Beach Clubhouse (312 Estrella Drive, LSB). Enjoy pancakes, bacon & eggs served up by your local firefighters for only $7 per person, w/kids 10 and under free. The breakfast supports a number of local youth organizations, and is a really fun, family-oriented event.

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.
 
Office Closed Memorial Day
 
The Admin Office at 6934 Soquel Dr. will be closed on Monday, May 25th, for Memorial Day. We wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday weekend, and thank all those who have served our military for their dedication and service.  

SCAM ALERT - Beware of False "Firefighter Charity" Calls Minimize

Residents of Aptos and the surrounding area are being targeted by a phone scam operation.  Callers claim to be firefighters with the Aptos/La Selva Fire District, who are collecting money for a Burn Foundation (or other) charity cause.  We urge the public to NOT give any credit card information, bank numbers or other personal info to these callers.  They are not associated with the District in any way, and local law enforcement has been alerted to the issue.  These callers seem to be using rotating cell phone numbers with a local (831) area code, which disconnects immediately after calling.
