Expired Medication Drop off Location

Whenever we busy people find time to clean out our homes, it's a good idea to check the medicine chest for expired medication. But where can you dispose of it? The location is no farther than your El Dorado County Sheriff's office at: 200 Industrial Dr. in Placerville. Pills are accepted, while other medical items may need to be confirmed with their office by calling: (530) 621-5655 during business hours.

Alert: It was recently learned that your prescriptions can also be considered hazardous waste and dropped off at 4100 Throwita Way, Placerville, CA on Friday - Sunday from 9:00 - 4:00 pm for free.

Senior Assistance Program for Vegetation Removal

For citizens in the county over 65 who are disabled, consider this program for establishing a defensible space around your property.

Pollock Pines Fire Safe Council

A fire can start anywhere in our community and for any reason, some set on purpose, by accident and a by force of nature. In Pollock Pines we have the American River canyon that poses a very large threat to our community if a fire were to start. The potential winds that could come up through the canyon with a fire could possibly reach Pony Express within hours.


Prepare with this Pre-Evacuation Checklist. Read this document to prepare for Wildfires.



The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program is a nationwide program that educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may effect their area. CERT training includes basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and urban rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations.

During a major disaster local authorities may be overwhelmed. CERT members are trained to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Their skills can help save and sustain lives until help arrives.

CERT can also assist with non-emergency community events. CERT members have been used to distribute disaster education material, provide standby medical aid and direct traffic at parades, community cleanup and other events.

In El Dorado County CERT training is coordinated through the Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services (OES). For more information contact Deputy Jordan Thomson (530) 621-7660, .

Pollock Pines CERT was formed in Oct. 2006. Our meetings are held at the Pollock Pines Camino Community Center the third Saturday of the month at 9:00 am. Visitors are welcome. Contact Bob Todd at for more information.
