11-2015 FireWise Bulletin (Printable Report)
State funds have been cut for funding mitigation projects! (See the
article in the Durango Herald at:
The current grant funds should last through the fall of 2016, so plan now
for mitigating your property next spring and summer, before the existing
funds dry up. Consider working with adjacent property owners to
mitigate two or more properties under one grant proposal. For
information, go to http://www.southwestcoloradofires.org/ and click on
“2015 Archuleta County Grant Application” in the left column. The
Grant and Chipper Rebate programs are currently closed for the season,
but it helps to be ready when the new applications are released early next
The chipping rebate program and the county slash depot on Trujillo Rd.
will both have funding through 2016.
Don’t forget to dig out your fire hydrants. For those new to Loma
Linda, a brief explanation: Almost all the hydrants have been “adopted”
by a resident nearby. Those residents will keep the hydrants and the
approach to the hydrants clear of snow for quicker access by fire
fighters. If you want to know who has adopted the hydrant nearest your
property, contact Peggy Beach. I’m sure they would appreciate some
help from time to time.
Now is a good time to review your property insurance policy and update
any changes such as home improvements or new personal property.
Take pictures of all valuables and of each room in the house, and store
the pictures on a memory stick dedicated to that. And while you’re at it,
update your Grab and Go bag with current documents, including new
vehicle registrations and titles.
Preparations for fire disasters parallel those for most natural disasters,
including severe winter dangers of extended loss of electricity and water.
Don’t wait for these events to happen… start now. Here are two web sites
with extensive lists for disaster preparedness: http://www.ready.gov , and
preparedness.com/emprepchecli.html. Check them out and get
