North Bay Firefighter's Burn Relay, May 24, 2017.

Each year Gold Ridge and surrounding Sonoma/Marin County fire agencies band together to raise money for burn survivors. Firefighters volunteer their day to participate in the Alisa Ann Rusch burn relay benefiting children that have been victims of burn injuries. Stops are made at fire stations in both counties to pickup funds raised to support this effort. Watch for the burn relay in May!

Happy New Year! North Pole Fire Brigade Toy Drive had another successful year!

We would like to thank all those who donated toys, food or money and made this year's toy drive such a huge success. Delivery was made December 20th and the District was able to provide food and toys for 253 people within the community: 150 Children, 93 adults and 10 seniors. Without the generosity of so many people, this would never have been possible. Thank you!
