The City of Riverside Fire Department will be conducting controlled training burns at Tequesquite Park on the following dates:

Thursday April 25th from 8:00 A.M. to NOON.

These burns will be conducted following strict safety guidelines and they will help to increase the defensible space between the homes on the bluffs and the Riverbottom. The class will provide valuable training to our firefighters. During the class we will be operating our brush trucks and patrol unit, where firefighters will learn to perfect their skills on the latest techniques.

You may see smoke, but rest assured the burns will be safe and under control.
