September Fire Safe Council Meeting Updates
The Yolo County Fire Safe Council met for its monthly meeting on September 28, 2022 from 4 to 5:30 PM. First on the agenda was electing a Chair and Vice Chair of the Yolo County Fire Safe Council. In August’s Fire Safe Council meeting, the Council learned of Chief Brad Lopez’s departure from Winters Fire Department to a new position at another Fire Department. Chief Lopez held the position of Vice Chair of the Yolo County Fire Safe Council. This September meeting was an opportunity for the Council to elect a new Chair and Vice Chair. The Council opted to re-elect Chief Rebecca Ramirez from Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation Fire Department as Chair and voted for Jonathan Flora from Capay Valley Emergency Response Auxiliary/Fire Safe Council to step into the role of Vice Chair. Congratulations and thank you to our Chair and new Vice Chair for their leadership on the Fire Safe Council. Next on the agenda, the Council heard reports and updates from Yolo County Office of Emergency, Yolo County Resource Conservation District, Solano Resource Conservation District, and last but not least, the community Fire Safe Councils in the region.
