Reports of destructive and life-threatening wildfires that have occurred in western states in the past few years may make owners of forested land nervous about the upcoming dry weather of summer. Be proactive and educate yourself on the steps you can take now to make your home and property more fire resistant!
Three upcoming workshops will offer these topics:
• Creating defensible space around your home and outbuildings
• Reducing the fuel that keeps fires burning low to the ground and more difficult to fight
• Making a plan for your family to escape in the case of wildfire
• Connecting with technical assistance and limited financial assistance
The workshops are free to attend, but because space is limited, registration is required.
