Our vision is to be recognized as knowledgeable and accessible professionals capable of providing the community with essential fire safety and ecosystem management services. It is through; professionalism, community and natural resource protection, leadership, accessibility, flexibility and continuous education we will continue to provide superior and quality service to our District’s constituents. Wildland fires will remain a constant threat to our communities due to the natural fire regime in our ponderosa fuel type. Our crew uses prevention measures of; educating property owners of hazards on the property and manipulation of hazardous fuels adjacent to structures and surrounding property, in an effort to lessen the damage incurred if a wildland fire were to impact our communities.
