BURN DAY INFO!

1. Before you burn, do you have a burn permit?

if not please go to your local fire department and ask for one. Make sure it is completely filled out before you start your burn. ( put it on your refrigerator or somewhere you can easily access the permit)

2. Before you burn, make sure to call to see if it is even a burn day.

(530) 274-7928 or (530) 268-1023 for burn day info

3. Please have a clear area (at least a 10' clearance around your pile for safety reason. You wouldn't want your pile to spread through your yard and have even a bigger burn than you wanted.

4. Have a water source near where you are burning, safety first!

5. Burn proper materials (no lumber or trash) and be safe!

 

 


 

 

The Basic Steps to Becoming a Volunteer Firefighter:

1. Make sure you're ready to commit. Making the decision to become a volunteer firefighter should not be taken lightly. It requires hundreds of hours of training and a strong commitment to service. Research Volunteer firefighting by reading articles and expert columns at FireRescue1.com's Volunteer page.

2. Contact your local fire service agency. Not all departments have volunteers, and depending upon your area, its population and local government, volunteer opportunities may not be available. If your local department doesn't have volunteers, one nearby may. FireDepartments.net has a directory of contact information and department statistics.

3. Call your local fire station's non-emergency numberand ask to speak with the station officer. Tell him or her that you're interested in becoming a volunteer and ask what your next step should be. He or she should be able do direct you to the best resources and people to help you. Often, departments will allow you to ride along on their apparatus to let you make a more informed decision about whether volunteer firefighting is right for you.

4. Once you've identified a department, you will need to complete their application and background check process. Screening process and required qualifications vary by department.

5. After you join, the department will usually enter you in a training program. The length of these programs varies, but all firefighters are required to take a minimum 110-hour NFPA-certified course.
