Serenading firefighters

For four nights last week, local bands organized by Realtor and sound roadie John Coulter offered concerts at the Nevada County Fairgrounds to firefighters from around the country battling the Yuba River Complex fires.

The concerts made it onto Sacramento television channels, and fire camps in Stockton and Orange County now also are getting serenaded, Coulter said.

“The fire chiefs called me and I showed them how to get in touch with the (local) bands,” he said. “It all started in Nevada County.”
