The Eustis Fire Incident Command Team has authorized a tour of the fire for members of the media today, Sunday, August 16th. Please arrive promptly at 1030 at the Incident Command Post in Toston (Camp is off of Hwy 287 on the eastside of the Hwy just south of Toston). You will be greeted by public information officers and given a short safety briefing before heading out on the fire. Please wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and sturdy shoes. If you have a hard hat please bring that as well; otherwise, one will be provided to you from our cache, along with a fire shelter.
We appreciate your prompt arrival and attention so that we can get out on the fireline as quickly as possible. This is the only media tour we will be offering today.
Contact public information for the Eustis Fire at 402-804-8755 if you need further information.
