Local leaders reaching out to Greater Winters residents

Support Local Journalism


This month Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor, Mayor Wade Cowan and Solano County Supervisor John Vasquez have been hosting listening sessions with residents in the Greater Winters Area who were impacted by the LNU Lightening Complex Fire.

So far in the Greater Winters LNU Complex Fire Listening Sessions: Identifying Gaps & Goals series, three virtual listening sessions have already been held.

The goal of the listening sessions is aimed to hear, almost entirely, the voices of residents. Saylor, Cowan and Vasquez are aiming to answer questions that can help identify gaps in our emergency systems and identify goals for future improvements, such as:

  • What do you want your elected and local leaders to know about your experience with the LNU Lightning Complex Fire?
  • What worked well – either in “the system” or in your own personal preparedness?
  • There will be a next time – what do you hope “next time” will look like?

Another series of listening sessions will take place in November. The focus will be on next steps and on taking action to improve current systems and responses.

Residents of the Greater Winters area who have been impacted by the LNU Lightning Complex Fires are invited to register for the final “Identifying Gaps & Goals” listening session. Greater Winters area is defined as properties located in the Winters zip code and/or within the Winters Joint Unified School District.

The fourth Greater Winters LNU Complex Fire Listening Session for the Identifying Gaps & Goals series is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 22 from 6-8 p.m.

Registration is required and each session is limited to 15 participants. Register at https://tinyurl.com/yyr6eolb
