Fire 8 Flyer - Spring/Summer Edition

Thank You SCFD8 community for supporting our February Maintenance & Operations Levy!

We invite you to attend our Fire Service Day Open House at Station 81, on Saturday, May 13th. And, there will soon be an opportunity to share your thoughts on the future of the Fire District as we begin to develop a new strategic plan later this year.

Wildfire season is not far away. In this Spring/Summer edition of the Fire 8 Flyer we share ideas on creating a defensible space around your home to create a buffer zone on your property, and how you can help us locate your home by having a visible Address Sign installed near your house.

If you have questions about the items in this newsletter, or the services we provide, please contact us at admin@scfd8.org or 509-926-6699.
