When there is a fire in the area, the Higgins’ stations received dozens of calls. Unfortunately, if you call the outlying stations, they may be out responding to the fire. The staff at the HQ Station 21 will usually only have general information. If you want more information or to keep informed, the local radio stations, KNCO News Talk AM 830 and KVMR Community Radio 89.5 FM do a great job of keeping locals informed of breaking news.

YubaNET.com and various local Facebook groups also are great resources.
