Due to the extreme risk of wildfire and Steelhead’s one road in and one road out, the Steelhead Community Association asked for a meeting with the Fire department and District of Mission Forestry to formulate an interim emergency plan in the case of a wildfire in our area. We will post the interim plan and procedures as soon as they get it to us. Stay tuned!
