The Fire District completed its first Evacuation Route and Road Hardening Project of 2022 along Altamont Road!
The Evacuation Route Project, which removed dead, dying, diseased, and damaged vegetation along the 4.4-mile, roundtrip route accomplished two important goals:
1. Safer evacuation in case of emergency.
2. Easier access for firefighters, paramedics, and equipment to combat the fire or reach residents who need help.
The Altamont Project was completed in May and connects past evacuation route projects on Page Mill Road and Moody & and El Monte Roads.
Approximately 25% of residents along the Altamont Evacuation Route Project participated in the project, allowing us to clear hazardous vegetation even further from the roadside, increasing the project’s effectiveness. Residence participation also vastly improves road visibility and travel safety.
If we have a project near you, you will receive a notification through mail with information on how to participate.
