The is why on May 4th Wildfire Community Preparedness gives us a chance to see how we can help. It’s recommended to rake and remove dry leaves and pine needles with a minimum of 3 to 5 feet from home’s foundation and from roof and gutters. Make sure to once debris is collected to dispose in yard waste receptacles. Have any grass areas mowed to four inches or less. Remove any downed tree limbs or broken branches and properly dispose of. If available, take the time to help any elderly person with any of the recommendations we have listed. Remove items that are stored under decks and porches and relocate it to a place of storage. Please remember gasoline cans and portable propane tanks should never be stored indoors and recommended to be located away from the home. We recommend looking up for other ways to prevent wildfires.
