Augmented air and ground firefighting resources during Summer-Preparedness staffing, or peak fire season, will transition to minimum staffing levels during the winter months.
CAL FIRE stations within the Riverside County Fire Department service area where two engines are staffed during Summer Preparedness will be reduced to one engine. These stations include:
- Station 1 -Perris
- Station 10 -Lake Elsinore
- Station 20 -Beaumont
- Station 28 -Sage
- Station 29 -Anza
CAL FIRE State station and aircraft staffing levels are typically augmented each summer. Careful and constant evaluation of predicted weather, fuel moisture and potential fire conditions dictates the annual transition from summer to winter preparedness staffing.
CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department would like to stress the importance of hardening your home in preparation of the 2011 and future fire seasons.
