Fire Department to Conduct Fire Training Burns on Wednesday and Thursday
The City of Elk Grove has partnered with the Cosumnes CSD Fire Department to offer live fire training within structures that are scheduled for demolition. The burns are scheduled to occur on Wednesday and Thursday, May 15 and 16, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Kammerer Road near Bruceville Road.
This training is being conducted with the approval of the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) and the State Fire Marshal’s Office Division of Training. Firefighters will be burning throughout the day, which may produce a large amount of smoke. To reduce the amount of smoke in your residence and/or business, keep doors and windows shut during hours of burning.
No street closures are planned during the training burns. Nearby residents, schools and businesses have been notified.
Drive Thru Vaccination Clinic Returns This Saturday
Elk Grove’s fur babies can get the protection they need and local pet owners don’t even have to get out of the car. Elk Grove Animal Services will host a Drive Thru Vaccination Clinic for local pets in Saturday, May 18. This free clinic is open to all Elk Grove residents with proof of residency (while supplies last). If your cat and/or dog are spayed/neutered and has not yet been licensed with the City of Elk Grove you will receive a 1-year free animal license (for Elk Grove residents ONLY). Questions? Contact Animal Services at (916) 687-3042.
