“While these volunteers are not trained as firefighters, they provide an important component to prevent destructive wildfires,” said Chairwoman Bartlett. “OC Fire Watch volunteers have over 12,000 hours of volunteer service in support of their communities. I want to congratulate all of them for a job well done and thank you for your service to our communities.”
“Orange County Fire Watch is thrilled to be recognized by the Board of Supervisors,” said Fire Watch Manager Tony Pointer. “Our volunteers are truly amazing, and we are so appreciative of their dedication to the Fire Watch activities.”
Orange County Fire Watch is a partnership among OC Parks, City of Irvine, City of Newport Beach, Irvine Ranch Conservancy and the Orange County Fire Authority, with the goal of reducing catastrophic wildfires through deterrence, early reporting and education.
