On Tuesday, March 14, the City of Mountain View Fire Department received 80 calls for service between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. due to the rain and heavy winds produced by today’s storm.

Calls for service included fires, fallen trees, utility wires down, traffic collisions, and smoke alarms. Thirty-three trees were reported down throughout the City before 2:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported to fire crews during the day. One family opted to stay in a hotel after a tree fell on their condominium creating a hole in the roof.

The fire department activated an additional engine company to respond to calls involving wires and trees down. The Mountain View Fire Department remains fully staffed and equipped during this time of extraordinary weather.
