Thirty-seconds is all it takes for a dry Christmas tree to be consumed by fire. The Sonoma County Fire Prevention Officers Association urges everyone to dispose of their trees as soon as possible, once it begins to show signs of drying out.  The first rule of tree disposal: Never put the tree or branches in a fireplace or wood burning stove! Sonoma County Waste Management has made it easy to recycle with four options. Also see our informational sheets on Portable Heater Safety & Carbon Monoxide Safety.

Forestville engine 5161 was dispatched to the Camp fire in Paradise the morning it broke out. We are so proud of our crews for stepping up without hesitation to constantly combat these raging fires. With the lack of rain over the last few years vegetation is at an all-time dryness and it is critical that everyone has an evacuation plan in place for these situations.

I urge everyone in the Timber Cove Community to inspect the power lines in our neighborhood. Years ago I insisted that PG&E sleeve the bare lines over Pine Court with a protective insulation. I am glad I did, as the pines and firs nearby drop branches on a regular basis.
