Fire Department will Honor Vital Volunteers at Upcoming Luncheon

On Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015 at 11:30 a.m., the City of Santa Barbara Fire Department will recognize 27 volunteers during a luncheon at Fire Station 1, 121 W. Carrillo Street.

These volunteers have been instrumental in assisting the Fire Department with several programs this year including the Fire Safety House Program, Community Emergency Response Team instruction (in both English and Spanish) and several other public education outreach programs. 

This year the Fire Safety House visited 11 local schools and reached approximately 700 3rd graders with important fire and life safety information.

The volunteers that assisted with CERT instructed over 72 participants; 35 in English and 43 in Spanish.

The volunteers, as a whole, contributed a total of 920 hours to the Fire Department. Without the assistance of the volunteers many public education programs would not have been accomplished this year.

This is the Department’s opportunity to honor those that have given their time and energy to volunteer in contributing important fire and life safety information to the Santa Barbara community. 

— Yolanda McGlinchey is the emergency services manager for the City of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
