Pollock Pines Fire Safe Council

A fire can start anywhere in our community and for any reason, some set on purpose, by accident and a by force of nature. In Pollock Pines we have the American River canyon that poses a very large threat to our community if a fire were to start. The potential winds that could come up through the canyon with a fire could possibly reach Pony Express within hours.

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A FIRE EVACUATION?
