A local resident reached out to us needing a little help installing a new smoke detector along with a carbon monoxide detector. Our crews are always willing to help those who need it. Remember, it is extremely important to check your detectors and make sure the batteries are working and are mounted in the correct places of the home. ... See MoreSee Less

After a long 14 days on the Dixie Fire, our firefighters are switching out for some well deserved rest. This afternoon we are sending a new crew off to relieve the current crew that has been on the fire line for 14 days straight. Conditions on the Dixie Fire are rough, with limited access to some areas and very steep terrain.

Help us welcome home these gentleman and also send well wishes to the guys taking their place on the Dixie Fire.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for our county!!! It is appreciated more than you know!!

Thank you frontline. Hang in there!

Thank you for your hard work..please rest now!

So thankful for your service, dedication and hard work.

Yes thank you to all you fire fighters.

Amazing people right there..... willing to take away from their own lives to make sure of the safety of strangers, no matter the cost.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your dedication and service to us all. We hold your safety and wellness in our consciousness.

Glad you made it home safely. Thank you VERY much for taking time away from your families and risking your life to keep everyone safe. ❤️

I am thankful they get overtime, but our firemen and fire women are way under paid for the dangers they get put into. It is as bad as our poor Military. Newsome says we are short handed because they get under paid, and does nothing about it. I don't get it.

Our hero's hard at work protecting our forests, homes and people. Thank you is not said enough.

I can't believe they willingly do this for us;. Even though i live in the east where we are drowning in rain we have had our bad years when we gave worried a lotvabout forest fires so i know a little. A local restaurant owner"s brother is a smoke jumper out there. Everytime he is home people buy him drinks and dinner in his brother"s restaurant.

Welcome home and prayers for new crew going out. Stay safe!

Thanks you for your service, be safe & take care

God bless you all. You guys are all heroes. Stay safe.
