Robert "Bobby" Wartgow

With very deep sadness I must advise you that Robert "Bobby" Wartgow has passed away. Bobby was one of the key foundational blocks of this organization, both as a volunteer and certainly as employee. More importantly to many of us, he was a friend, mentor, leader, and change agent. He instilled and insisted in always putting the care of the patient first and demanded the very best of everyone when providing service to the public.

Spring 2018 Back Yard Burn is Open!

The Spring 2018 general backyard burn season runs through Sunday, May 6.

Burn permits will be available for pick up at all fire stations, the District Office, the Minden Inn and can be downloaded from this link.

Residents participating in general backyard burning will be instructed per the permit to call the East Fork Fire burn line each day they wish to burn. A recording will advise whether it is a permissive burn day and what the permissive burn hours are for that day. The burn days and hours will be determined by the Battalion Chief; burning can start as early as 0700 hours and must be completely extinguished by 1530 hours.

It is the responsibility of the burner to have the correct burn permit on the premises and to check the burn line to confirm burn day status and hours. The Spring Burn Permit number is 03172018-590.
