My old incident commander would send us out with “go out and do good stuff.” Evergreen Fire Department is doing a bunch of “good stuff.” The department’s CWPIP groups just received a grant in the value of $295,000 for mitigating escape routes supported and managed by the department.

The summer mitigation crews are preparing for an active season. DeDisse Park is a great example of what a good mitigation looks like. A mitigation contractor’s workshop is scheduled this month and more classes are planned. The department has applied for a Community Mitigation Assistance Team (CMAT) to come into our community for 14 days of hard work to assist the department strengthen and expand the communities’ ability to survive a major wildfire.

Plus, 90 new volunteers, doesn’t sound like the department is having problems with getting recruits. The department is moving in a good direction and more “good stuff” is on the way. Any change in the direction of the department would only hurt these programs. Support incumbents Mike Gregory, Jeff DeDisse and new candidate Kenny Erhart.

Peter Anderson, Evergreen
