Friday Update on August 5 2016

All,

A hot and smokey week so this is really brief and it is late afternoon on a Friday:

  • Unfortunately, this week we experienced the third consecutive year of a major wildfire. The “Cold” Fire has now burned close to 5,000 acres, 1,600 personnel and millions of dollars in costs to fight the fire. Cal Fire has brought in the Team 6 “Incident Management Team” to coordinate the final stages of the fire. Team 6 is an elite fire coordination unit and were here last year on the Wragg Fire. It is amazing to have them here, but we kind of wish it would stop being an annual event.
  • As of this writing, the spread of the fire has stopped, but much of the fire is in areas with heavy growth and is  difficult to access with crews. The reliance on aircraft limits much of the fire fight to daytime hours.
  • A Community Meeting will be held on Saturday, August 6 at the Winters Fire Station beginning at 3:00 all persons affected by the Fire are invited to attend, especially the residents of Positas and Golden Bear who experienced the evacuation.
  • Kudo’s to both Winters Fire and the Napa CalFire Unit who coordinated the initial response and the first two days of the blaze. They were the ones who facilitated the initial attack on the fire which saved all the homes and assisted most of the people involved. The incident commander was Geoff Baelow from the Napa CalFire Unit and he did an amazing job of coordinating resources. Winters Fire was in command of the units which protected the homes in Golden Bear. Enough cannot be said for the professionalism and effort given from these personnel.
  • Special thanks to the many residents displaced by the fire. The understanding over the years has been amazing. Special recognition to Golden Bear Estates resident Neal Van Alfen who is an incredible advocate for that area.

Again, the third year of a major wildfire which results in activating the emergency operations for the City and County makes this a really difficult week. The most I can say is how proud I am to be associated with the men and women in our public safety who are those first responders. AGAIN, their professionalism and talents saved hundreds of homes and lives through the use of their training and talents to suppress the fire. Napa CalFire and Winters Fire were amazing and I was extremely proud of how they handled the entire situation. Resources are really taxed throughout the State with multiple fires occurring now so our personnel needed to take much of this on their own and they came through.

Have a nice weekend.

John
