Loyalton Elementary School hosted a live action fire drill on Monday, April 22, 2013. In attendance were representatives from the Loyalton Volunteer Fire Department, Sierra County Sheriff's Department, and the United States Forest Service. The drill served multiple purposes. First, it was to familarize the students with what would happen in the event of a real fire or any type of emergency. It is very important for children and adults to observe what is going to occur so they can remain as calm as possible in the event of an actual emergency. It also allowed multiple agencies to train together in the event of a large scale emergency. This fire drill evolved into a "suspicious package" being reported.
Tour De Manure will be held June 15, 2013. Starting in Sierraville at the Fire Department the proceeds support, riders have an option of biking 62 miles, 42 miles or 30 miles. Riders enjoy the finish line with a live band and great food. For more information or to sign up, contact TourdeManure@gmail.com
