Teams of enthusiastic volunteers canvassed local shopping centers to educate the public on family evacuation planning and to raise funds for local fire safety programs as part of Fire Prevention Week in early October.
Fire Safe Council executive Director, Joanne Drummond, says the Council was overwhelmed with the community response.
In addition to collecting donations, the Fire Safe Council also distributed Fire Safe information.
Drummond extends the Fire Safe Council’s appreciation and gratitude to Nevada County residents for supporting the Council’s efforts.
