Once again we are experiencing ‘drift smoke’ that is causing a diffuse smell of smoke within the district. This smoke is coming from wildfires on the west coast and in western Colorado, and could continue for the next couple days. Please call 911 only if you see a confirmed smoke column and/or active flames.
A reminder on emergency notifications in case of a local incident. These come from the appropriate county sheriff (even if requested by the fire department, and able to cross county lines if needed) and will typically take the form of a broadcast phone call to affected neighborhoods. Given that we now have more mobile devices, and fewer landlines, you can also receive notifications via phone call to mobile device, or TXT message or email.
