Controlled Burn at Painted Rock (Moraga Rd/Rheem) today.

Firefighters from the Moraga-Orinda Fire District are conducting a controlled burn at the John Muir Land Trust property at the Painted Rock (above Moraga Road and Rheem Blvd) TODAY (July 6th).  The training will begin at approximately 10:00a and conclude no later than 5:00p.  This project is designed to provide training for firefighters and reduce the amount of flammable fuels in the area, increasing safety in our community.

Safety is the number one priority. The project has been set up to take advantage of existing weather and fire control lines and is being executed according to a strict “go, no go” checklist. The exercise is being coordinated with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and Fire Weather Forecasters at the National Weather Service to ensure the size and timing of the burning will minimize smoke impacts to homes and other smoke-sensitive sites in the area. 
If burning conditions change, the project will be cancelled. Residents in the area and those driving nearby may see or smell smoke. Closing exterior doors and windows during the day will help to keep smoke from entering homes.  PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY AND SAFELY IN THE AREA AS THERE ARE FIRE ENGINES AND FIREFIGHTERS ON AND AROUND THE STREETS.

Questions or concerns can be directed to the Moraga-Orinda Fire District at 925-258-4599.  Thank you for your support and cooperation as your first responders work to keep Moraga a safe community.
