Oracle Towne Crier

The Oracle Firewise Board purchased a new sign to alert the community and travelers to current fire danger conditions. Volunteers from Oracle CERTS, Dan Piermarini, Kevin Armbrust, Brian Kirkpatrick, and John Medley installed the sign on property owned by Oracle residents Frank Pierson and Mary Ellen Kazda. The new sign is located at the junction of American Avenue and the Mt. Lemmon Road turn off.

The dial indicator on the sign will be changed in conjunction with the Smokey Bear sign at the Oracle Fire Station and the changing fire danger conditions. The firehouse also has a red warning flag which is put up when extreme fire danger conditions are in effect. With the recent wildfires we have had in Arizona including one near Redington, the public needs to pay attention to fire danger warnings and do their best to help prevent wildfires.
