House fires can spread at a truly alarming speed. Most things around you can crumble to ashes in mere seconds. That's why you have to act as soon as you hear your fire alarm go off. Take your safety seriously! Make sure your house is equipped with functioning smoke alarms. Check them regularly, preferably once a month, and replace their batteries twice a year.

A Quick Fire Safety Tip

A common cause for house fires is accumulated lint in and around the dryer. Clean the vent screen on your dryer after each use. You should also clean out your dryer ductwork twice per year.

The Matt Garcia Foundation Is Keeping His Dream Alive

Matt Garcia was a man with a vision. He was the youngest city councilman elected in the state of California in November 2007. Matt was a great young leader and an inspiration to all who knew him. Matt was only 22 years old… but, he lived more in those short years than many adults can even imagine. He led by inspiration, with integrity and ambition.

Matt’s dream involved supporting the youth and creating places for them to go and things for them to do; Changing a culture of violence and crime in the city through youth involvement. By uniting a community all people will have a sense of belonging and responsibility to the city of Fairfield. Matt’s life was cut short, but his legacy, work, and heart live on.

The Matt Garcia Foundation was established to carry out Matt’s dream. We are dedicated to the work and efforts that Matt started and hope that we can inspire others to be the change in this world we live in, just as Matt inspired us.

Matt’s vision has guided us,
but we need continued support from all of you
to make his dream a reality.

A commitment to changing a culture of violence and crime in Solano County.

Together we can continue Matt’s efforts and make his dream our reality.

The Matt Garcia Foundation “Dream Team" pledges to live Matt’s legacy.
