The recent Lilac fire is only the most recent of the wildfires to affect our area. We have dealt with fires in the past but they seem to be more frequent, and due to increasing population, more damaging to property. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the firefighters and first responders who came from as far away as Alaska to help get the Lilac Fire under control.
RMWD staff worked 24 hours a day through the fire event, closely coordinating our activities with the Incident Command set up by Cal Fire. We had a liaison posted at the command center that kept the line of communications open. Even though we had to evacuate our personnel and equipment from our offices due to threat of fire, we kept our Emergency Operations Center up and running throughout the event.December 2017 Final.pdf
