Vallecitos is prepared for fire.
With the extreme fire weather and smoke just north of us, we wanted to assure our customers that Vallecitos is well prepared in case the fire reaches our service area.
Our staff is highly trained and has extensive experience dealing with situations such as this. Vallecitos monitors the weather daily so even before the Santa Ana conditions began, Vallecitos’ Water Operations Team increased the water levels of our storage reservoirs to make sure that firefighters would have sufficient water available to fight fires if needed. As power loss can be a concern during fires, we have emergency generators on hand to make sure that our pump stations continue to supply water to our reservoirs in case of an outage.
As State emergency workers, we are sworn under oath to be responders in these emergencies. We take this responsibility very seriously and are on high alert, ready to aide our firefighters if needed.
