Wildfire is Coming … ARE YOU READY?
Murphys to Camp Connell residents and landowners are urged to attend a Wildfire Community Preparedness Day event Sat., May 6, from 9:00 to 1:30 in Arnold. All Calaveras County residents are welcome.

Find out what’s been done to help protect you from catastrophic fire, what’s on the horizon — and what YOU can do. See EPFD’s new all-terrain vehicle and a fire truck, as well as a Masticator – and six grazing goats.

Local fire officials and forestry experts at Independence Hall (1445 Blagen Road) and experienced vendors at tables outside to tell you about sprinklers for your roof and how to create a defensible space, including how to do your own prescribed burns.
Pick up a new color map of the Highway 4 Wildfire Defense System of fuel breaks and an application for the free Door-to-Door Chipper Program & learn how to get a CAL FIRE grant for your neighborhood.

FREE Gold County Roasters coffee, water donated by Arnold Discount Center & free lunch from Cal-Waste.

PLUS a FREE raffle including a FREE rental of a Yard Waste Bin from Cal-Waste.
