Meet Michelle!


It was such a pleasure to meet our new Patrol Officer for the Forest Service.  Michelle Bletcher stopped by so I could take her picture before taking off with Robert Carlyle of our Fire Safe Council. They went to a property with prospective buyers (now brand new owners!!!) to learn about preparing the land for building and grooming the land to hopefully save the trees and structures if there was a fire.  The buyers were very impressed with her knowledge and we are very glad to have Michelle on Palomar!

From: Michelle Bletcher

Palomar Mountain is one of my priority patrol area€™s so I will be up often. I come with a background in fire suppression, having worked on engines, helicopters, and hotshot crews. I am new to the District and to fire prevention and I am extremely happy to be here. I look forward to meeting and assisting with recommendations to make properties more fire safe and defensible in time of fire while serving the people of Palomar Mountain.

Thank you.
