Fire Season

Fire Season runs from December to June
 
Here are some tips from local firefighters to keep your home safe during the dry season:
 
* Create a defensible space 30' from your home in all directions
* Remove all dead vegetation from around your home
* Remove tall shrubs and vines that can act as a path for fire to travel    faster
* Store firewood and other flammable materials away from your home
* Clear an area around propane tanks and barbeques at least 15'
* Set up your barbeque grill away from your home
* Dispose of all smoking materials in an ashtray or wet before placing    in garbage
