A very special thank you to all the fine folks in Mosier who helped keep this remarkably dry year remarkably free from fires. Good fortune and a community effort kept us safe for another year. On behalf of the Fire District Board and Volunteers, thank you all for doing your part.
And please don’t forget to ensure fire safety in and around your home in winter, especially overloaded extension cords and other electrical hazards, which account for a high percentage of preventable house fires.
