Sierra Madre First Responders, including SMPD Chief Rod Armalin and SMFD Captain Rich Snyder, honored 
the memory of those whose lives were forever change by the events on 9/11/2001 early Friday morning. 
Interim SMFD Chief Bartlett was unable to attend due to the fact that he was in attendance at the morning 
briefing for the Bobcat Fire. Firefighter Scott Rosevear (;owere right) rang the department's Bell at precisely 
7:03 am, the moment the Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania. Passengers on that flight were able to overtake the 
terrorists and prevent the plane from reaching its destination, the US Capital. Photo by S. Henderson/


As the city was being threatened by the Bobcat Fire, 
the SMFD took proactive steps in an effort to 

protect the community.

At press time, the Bobcat Fire had grown to approximately 26,368 
acres and was 6% contained. 
There were 540 
personnel assigned to the

10 handcrews, 1 helicopter, 
2 aircraft, 5 dozers and 5 
water tenders. LA County 
Blackhawks working the 
perimeter in the southwest 
portion of the fire.

Orders and Evacuation 
Warnings were issued for 
parts of Monrovia, Duarte, 
Arcadia, Sierra Madre 
(above Grandview), Altadena 
and Monrovia. 
As of Friday morning, 
Those orders were lifted. 
Red Flag Warnings were 
removed as of 8:00 p.m. 
Thursday night. 

 Howeverm current 
air quality is extremely 
poor with heavy ash 
and smoke throughout 
the city. Residents are 
urged to please remain 
indoors and look after 
populations that may need extra support. 

 According to SMFD Captain Rich Snyder, "A team that included 
SMFD WT 41 (Captain Snyder, Engineer Skidmore, SM Firefighter 
Diaz and Monrovia Fire WT 101 and Patrol 101 Captain 
Rapp, Captain Phelps, Engineer Arellano and Firefighter Scott 
mixed and applied just shy of 6,000 gallons of PhosChek in Sierra 
Madre and Monrovia.

off by rain. The redness will fade away in sunlight in a week or 

 The City of Sierra Madre and the Sierra Madre Fire Department 
continue to monitor the Bobcat Fire and are in constant communication 
with the incident commanders. In a letter to residents 
from Chief Bartlett, residents were thanked for their continued 
cooperation. He asked that everyone "please continue to look out 
for each other and help a neighbor in need. "

Monrovia, CA – The City of Monrovia 
advises non-residents to avoid areas 
above Foothill Boulevard. This is to ensure 
that if an Evacuation Order is issued 
residents are able to evacuate and 
streets are easily accessible for public 
safety crews.

 Last night, the City of Monrovia received 
reports of vehicles blocking traffic 
in residential neighborhoods, creating 
public safety concerns and even 
delaying fire engines from reaching 
their intended destination. These traffic 
jams were caused by people traveling to 
the areas north of Foothill Boulevard to 
observe and photograph the fire. 

The Monrovia Police Department has 
established roadblocks throughout the 
planned evacuation routes to discourage 
visitors from impeding potential 
evacuation routes. Moving forward, 
those travelling through will be asked to 
show ID or proof of residence for access 
to areas highlighted on the evacuation
