Below is the routes for each night indicating the neighborhood that will be traveled and what roads we will travel on.
Remember during this season when people are clearing their yards to burn your yard waste safely. Yard waste fires what get out of control contribute to uncontrolled forest fires during this time of year.

Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department Offers Fire Prevention Tips
for a Safe and Festive Holiday Season
The Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department Reminds you don’t be a Doofus and be safe while cooking and celebrating this holiday season
For most of us, the holiday season represents a time for family festivities and good cheer. What few of us consider is that the holiday season is a time when there is an increased risk of home fires. According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), many households engage in holiday activities that serve as some of the leading causes of U.S. home fires, including cooking. Christmas trees, candle usage and holiday decorations also significantly contribute to the seasonal causes of home fires. Add to that the hectic nature of the holidays, when people are trying to accomplish multiple tasks at one time, and the chance for home fires grows even further.
The Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department would like to take a moment to thank the members of our community who have helped with donations during our current fund drive. We have had a very good turn out and the donations continue to come in on a daily basis.
Our fund drive is conducted by a semi-annual mail-out,. We do not make solicitation phone calls. If you receive a phone call stating they are from the Chaires Capitola VFD requesting donations, please contact us at 942-4033 to let us know. We also occasionally conduct boot drives and car washes in or near our territory.
