Creating Fire Safety Zones in a Wooded Environment

News coverage of recent wildfires destroying California homes is frightening, but could it happen here? If you’re wondering what you can do to protect your property from wildfires, then you’ll want to attend this “Creating Fire Safety Zones in a Wooded Environment” program.

He holds certifications as structural firefighter, wildland firefighter, hazmat responder, fire instructor, and recently completed a National Fire Protection Association course in “Assessing Structure Ignition Potential from Wildfire”.

This meeting is FREE and open to the public, but non-members are asked to reserve a seat. Refreshments will be served.
