We are more than half way through 2016. We have seen a great deal of rain this year, and for us, that also means a lot of growth and potential fire load for the remainder of the year. Triple digit temperatures and the decrease of precipitation means that the threat of large and rapidly moving wildland fires will continue to rise. Observe burn-ban requirements and keep a watchful eye on your surroundings.

Department Activities

Fire Danger will continue to increase as we finish out the Summer. There are a number of things you can do to help protect your property in the event of a fast moving wild fire. Keep a good perimeter around your house, your barns or garages. Keep grass mowed and remove any stacked materials away from buildings. When the wind is blowing, look around your house and buildings to see where wind currents deposit blowing materials. The wind will also blow fire embers and burning materials in the same places. Do not leave light weight and flammable chairs and cushions out on your deck when they are not in use. Most houses destroyed in wildland fires are due to small things catching fire and then spreading that fire up walls of buildings and across wooden decks.

WE LOVE YOU GUNNY!
