DO NOT call 911 just see if a fire is burning in the Shingletown area. Unnecessary 911 calls take dispatchers away from dealing with emergencies. Use 911 to report fires when you can see smoke or flames. Be able to tell emergency dispatchers -  to the best of your ability - the location of where you see smoke or flames..  Please do not call CAL FIRE  in Shingletown.  Again, this can interfere with their ability to respond to emergencies.

Fireman's Prayer


When I am called to duty, God

Wherever flames may rage

Give me the strength to save a life

Whatever be its age

Enable me to be alert to hear the

Weakest Shout

And quickly and effectively put the

fire out

I want to serve my calling and give

the best in me

To God and my every neighbor and protect

His property

And if it is according to your will

That I should lose my life

Please, God, with protection bless

my family and my wife

May God be our refuge and our strength

Help you bear your sorrow

And in his way grant you peace

  To lighten each tomorrow 

Amen

If there is a wildfire in Shingletown and you get notice to evacuate

or contacted to do so, please listen.  Failure to do so not only puts your life in danger but the 1st responders if they have to return to get you out! Wanting to protect your home is a natural reflex but your safety and those of the 1st responders need to come first.  Please do not try and sneak into a evacuated or closed area, this is  for the safety of yourself and 1st responders.


Once again Shingletown Council, Inc. is providing a fire safe program to Shingletown.  Please take advantage of this program.  While there is no charge to residents,  please donate when checking in.  These men and women volunteer their time and equipment to help keep us fire safe. Thank You to the Shingletown Council, Inc.

Thank you 1st Responders, both local and out of area, Air Support, Hot Shot Crews,Shasta County Sheriff, Redding PD & the CHP for your many hours and sacrifices in fighting the Carr Fire. Please be safe!
