Wildland Fire Preparedness
Hot temperatures and a landscape that is quickly drying out means fire season is upon us. Wildland fires don’t just happen in the forest and are often ignited on public lands that are adjacent to private property; the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI). Personal responsibility is a key part of being prepared for wild land fires, especially if you live within the WUI. Be smart and create a defensible space around your home and outbuildings by clearing brush, thick dense trees, and planting vegetation around the home that can be kept lush and green. Take action now to be ready; have a plan and get a kit for you, your family, pets, and livestock if it becomes necessary to evacuate.
