June 26, 2017
9:00A.M. – 5:00P.M.

Rodeo-Hercules Fire District Personnel will be conducting a Live Fire Training Burn in the open space of the “Old Bayo Vista Housing” area. Surrounding homes in the area may notice smoke. While the burn is used for firefighter training, this also minimizes the grass and brush fuels and decreases the threat of intense grass fires in the area.

Any questions or concerns please contact the Rodeo-Hercules Fire District at (510)799-4561. We thank the residents of Rodeo for your cooperation and apologize in advance for any inconveniences this may cause.
