12-2014 FireWise Bulletin (Printable Report)
Property owners and our HOA Board at Loma Linda have been busy this year, working both independently on mitigation projects on their property and participating in community projects to make Loma Linda a safer community, including:
-Ongoing mitigation by property owners
-Creation of a shaded fuel break at the southwest corner of the development
-Submission of our Community Wildfire Protection Plan for approval
-Driveway inspections for emergency vehicle accessibility*
-Chipping days to reduce/remove mitigated slash piles*
-Proposed purchase of 2-sided reflective house signs for all dwellings
-Wildland-Urban Interface Checkpoint to distribute fire safety information
-Home Ignition Zone inspections*
-Fire Hydrant “adoption” program*
As a result of these efforts, Loma Linda has received national recognition as a FireWise Community/USA for 2014. This is only the second award given in Archuleta County. (The first was given to our neighbors, Echo Canyon Ranch Estate.) While this is a monumental achievement for our community, the work doesn’t stop here. In order to maintain the award and, most importantly, to make Loma Linda a “fire-resistant” community, we must continue to work throughout the coming year on mitigation projects and take a look at such issues as emergency evacuation procedures, safe gathering zones within the development, possible modifications to the ACC building code on new structures to meet FireWise recommended standards.
(The above projects marked with * are still available to home owners. Contact Peggy Beach for information about these and other activities past and future.)
I strongly urge all home owners in Loma Linda to accept the Board’s offer of the two-sided reflective address signs (free signs, free installation!). Although the signs may seem less than esthetically pleasing, I can assure you that a far more unpleasant sight is that of the emergency vehicle, searching for your house late at night, driving past your driveway because your house number wasn’t visible from the road after dark. Our Pagosa Fire and Medical Emergency Responder people have applauded our choice of these double sided signs. These signs can save lives.
