California Wild Fires & Local TFRs
Dear friends,  

Thank you so much to everyone who was looking out for us...and others this week. I don't mind saying it, it was one long week for everyone here in Wine Country and I don't now how any of us would have made it without all of the continuous support from our friends and families. 

The California wildfires have been, and continue to be, devastating to so many of our colleagues, customers, neighbors and friends, and while our office remains untouched by the fires we know that many, many others have not been so fortunate. 

We are safe, home, the air is clearing this morning and we're looking forward to rebuilding this beautiful place we call home. 

If there is anything we can do to assist in those efforts, please contact me directly at (707) 364-0825

Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) are still in affect over most of Sonoma and Napa Counties which means no "drones" or any other civilian aircraft are allowed within these TFRs. We will let you know as soon as those TFRs have been lifted and we are able to fly over, assess and photograph affected areas and property.

Please, if you are a recreational drone (sUAS) operator or hobbyist, DO NOT FLY YOUR DRONE. Remember, it is not legal for anyone to fly a drone within Flight Restricted areas. Any drones seen in areas of fire fighting operations will ground all emergency flight crews. This is a serious and life threatening situation. DO NOT FLY! until the FAA lifts the TFRs.
