Fire Fest Committee thanks participants

More than volunteers, including the California Conservation Corps, El Dorado County Sheriff’s S.T.A.R., county, state, and federal firefighters and agency and public utility staff, spent a busy Saturday on Oct. 14, presenting Fire Fest 2006, our 16th year.

Add to the efforts lots of emergency response staff members, including helicopter crews from CHP, the United States Forest Service, CareFlight and CalStar, KRLT staff, donations by dozens of local businesses and, of course, Kiwanis Club of Lake Tahoe with their savory barbecue, and you can see why it’s hard to adequately thank everyone.

An estimated 4,500 people attended this year and, through equipment demonstrations, Smokey Bear and Ronald McDonald, displays, handouts and lots of fun, we raised our community’s awareness about fire prevention and home safety and energy conservation.

The Fire Fest Committee sends a sincere thank you to everyone who worked hard to promote, and who came to enjoy, our 2006 event. See you next year.

— Jeanne Lear, human resources manager
