It is very important to be fire safe while living in this beautiful neighborhood. We work together as a community to keep safe from fire. Here are a few things to ensure on your property:
- Keep all roofs clean of leaves and debris.
- Move your woodpile 30 ft. away from your house.
- Remove dead trees, brush and branches from your property.
- Remove litter, boxes, etc. from under your deck.
- Install a reflective address sign in front of your house.
- The Fire Safe Council’s website has information about defensible space. Having a defensible space includes keeping your property clear of surface and ladder fuels (such as those mentioned above), which can cause fire to spread. You can learn more at their website at www.firesafecouncil.org.
