A Message from the Chief

As most of you are aware, we have our annual 5 Miles My Way fun run coming up on July 4th. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been consulting with our county health officials discussing the rising numbers of Covid 19 cases, the precautions we need to put in place and

recommendations to the public attending the event. The County Health Officials recommend that the department not hold the event due to the current spike in COVID-19 cases, the current hospital situation, the number of participants and the inability to maintain adequate social/physical distancing during certain times of the event.

As your Fire Chief, it is my duty to do what is best to maintain the safety of the participants and residents of the community that we love and serve. Taking everything into consideration for the safety of our community and our personnel, I have decided to postpone our Annual 5 Miles My Way fun run to later in the year (date TBD, but possibly Labor Day or Thanksgiving Week).

This was a very difficult decision to make. Our annual 5 Miles My Way fun run has been held for over 30 years and it brings our community together as we celebrate July 4th. This is one of two annual fundraisers that combined, provide approximately $40,000.00 to our annual budget. Both events have now been postponed as the safety of our community is our top priority.

As for the fireworks, the fire department provides fire watch during and after the show. We are not the host for the event. The Homeowners associations host the fireworks, any questions about the fireworks show should be directed to them.

Again, thank you for your support. It’s an honor to serve as your Fire Chief.

If anyone has any questions please email our Community Relations Committee at communityrelations@pecangrovefire.org.

Stay Safe and Healthy

Chief Woolley
