We’ve received our new rescue air boat purchased through mitigation fees. This new boat will be a very valuable asset to the District and is replacing our old air boat of over 30 years. It’s equipped with a fan and a Kevlar bottom that enables us to travel across ice and snow. This will greatly assist our District in providing effective rescue and recovery services on the many bodies of water in our area. In addition, the boat has many other modern implements like an infrared system to identify distressed and possibly drowning persons at night. We’ll be out training on Donner Lake over the next month.
Build a Winter Survival Kit for your car. With recent #truckee storms, it’s likely you could get stuck in your vehicle for an extended time. Be prepared. https://www.redcross.org/get-help/how-to-prepare-for-emergencies/survival-kit-supplies.html
As you deck the halls this holiday season, be fire smart. A small fire that spreads to a Christmas Tree can grow large very quickly.
