On Sunday Bernalillo County District 5 (East Mountains) Commissioner Wayne Johnson will be hosting "East Mountain Celebration 2016", a chance to honor the Dog Head Fire heroes. The event will take place at the Los Vecinos Community Center in Tijeras, from noon until 4 pm. The community center is about a 1/2 mile west of the Old 66/NM 337 intersection. Live music, a car show, and a petting zoo are some of the attractions. There will also be an area where various EM groups will have preparedness information and items for sale, as well as games for the kids.
Come on by! EMIFPA will have a table at the event. We will have our safety preparedness literature on display. Of course, if you just have questions about preparedness, we encourage you to ask. If we can't answer your question, we will absolutely put you in touch with someone who can help.
As always, EMIFPA advises all residents to be aware, be prepared, and be self reliant. Fire conditions in our area are presently "moderate". As always, Report It, Don't Ignore It! If you see or smell smoke, call 911 immediately.
