Calistoga Tribune Reflect to Protect

On August 24, Napa Firewise, Calistoga Fire Safe Council, Diamond Mountain Fire Safe Council and Bank of the West teamed up to kick off the installation of reflective address signs at homes throughout Calistoga, aided by an enthusiastic group of 32 Bank of The West employee-volunteers who installed signs at approximately 228 properties out of an eventual 400 total. This innovative pilot program, which helps firefighters find homes in dark, smoky, emergency conditions, is a big step towards making the community safer. Napa Firewise hopes this model can be replicated in other cities in Napa County, and possibly inspire other communities throughout California. Bank of the West provided generous support for this project, making the signage and installation free to all Calistoga residents who applied.
