The department responded to 654 total calls in 1999. "This is generally a climate type of an issue," Rose said when presenting the depart- ment's third quarter status re- port. "Building fLres are high in the first quarter during heating season." During the third quarter - from July through the end of September - city volunteers and paid staff provided mutu- al aid to fight grass fires. This year the department assisted the California De- partment of Forexy and Fire Protection on the Goat Fire, the Storrie Fire and the Con- cow Fire. "The fire season still isn't over in some areas," the fire clii6f said. "They did have a pretty good brush fire the oth- er day out on Sunnyside Road." A new emphasis on interac- tion with the public and an- swering questions allowed Su- sanville fire fighters to help people correct the deficien- cies before fires happened, Rose said. In fact the department, with nine paid staff members, 21 volunteers and 10 explorers provided fire extinguisher training, station tours and school assemblies. Fifty-five children and 10 adults took the station tour this quarter, according to the report Rose presented at the Wednesday, Nov. 1, meeting. Eighty children and six adults attended assemblies put on by staff and volun- teers. The department provid- ed fire extinguisher training to 115 adults. Of the 154 calls in the third quarter, 28 were for fires. There were six building fires, 13 grass fires, five outside rubbish fires, one chimney or flue fire, two vehicle fires and Tiros ls [ ! wc, rk! Call 257-5321 one other fire.
