Thanks to fire agencies and to Bill Hallett, too

Thanks to a quick response by CDF and our other fire agencies, Nevada County experienced a relatively safe fire season.

Credit also the volunteers who man CDF’s Banner Mountain Lookout. Special recognition is due Bill Hallett. For 11 years he has voluntarily given up his weekends, putting in 10-hour days in the tower. During these 11 years he never missed a day, spotted numerous fires, and has logged up to 400 lookout hours a fire season.

Thanks, Bill, for your dedicated service in protecting both our forest and our homes.
