2020 ANNUAL FIREWISE MEETING and the MITIGATION EFFORT
I want to thank those that participated in our annual Firewise mitigation event October 10th. This year we combined our annual Firewise meeting and our mitigation
day activities. Each year we hold a mitigation day to reduce the fuel around our community center, to reduce fire risk. In the event of a large fire our community center
may become an emergency shelter. This year marks our tenth year as a Firewise community. Attendees were provided with Firewise and Ready Set Go literature to
help with their fire preparation plans. In the event of a large fire, your efforts in making your property more resistant to fire may make the difference for your homes
survival. Once again, thanks for your continuing support of our Firewise and Ready Set Go program.

NEW UV LANTERN DISINFECTANT
We now have an easier method to help disinfect
our vehicles and the high traffic areas of our
station. The UV lantern shown in the photos can
disinfect a truck cab in only a few minutes time. UV
lamps work by emitting high intensity (254 nM) UV
light which disinfects in a matter of minutes. This
tool will reduce our dependence on wiping down
surfaces by hand. We want to thank our county
government for providing our department with this
amazing tool to reduce our firefighters risk of
exposure to the Corona virus.
FEBRUARY 23, 2021 Trash Pick-Up
On Tuesday February 23, 2021, DMRVFD support team members and firemen got together to pick up trash
on our section of Highway 166, mile marker 179-181. Some of us met up at the fire station at 9:45, the rest met
up at the mailboxes for 10 am.
We had 10 volunteers this time. Sam House, Mercedes Gonzales, Cathy Gossett, Ken Gossett,
Jan Van Liere, Rebecca Leach, Timothy Leach, Pam Edwards, Mariel Davis and myself.
We had two very full bags left at the sign and 4 grocery bags of cans to take to the recycling. After so many
days of cold it was nice to be out in the sunshine and warmth.
