FireWise Bulletin:

02-2015 Firewise Bulletin (Printable Report)

FireWise Bulletin
February, 2015

Have you had a Home Ignition Zone assessment done on your home? It’s quick, easy,
and free! It could make a big difference in the event of a wildfire, whether the fire
approaches your house or just sends burning embers your way. You should also consider
having your driveway assessed to determine its accessibility by emergency vehicles.
This includes the width and height clearances as well as the turn-around space at your
house. Both of these assessments together take about an hour. Keep in mind that, in a
wildfire situation in our community, fire fighters will not approach a dwelling if they
cannot safely get their equipment in and out of a driveway. Contact Peggy Beach at
264-0463 or peggybeach9@aol.com to make an appointment or for more information.
Another source of funding has opened up. The National Fire Protection Agency
(NFPA) and State Farm Insurance are sponsoring sixty-five $500 project awards to
implement neighborhood projects as part of Wildfire Community Preparedness Day on
May 2, 2015. The projects can be individual or group activities that contribute to
making our homes and development more fire resistant. Applications must be in by
midnight on March 5. For more information and to get the application form, visit the
NFPA website at http://www.WildfirePrepDay.org. Suggested project ideas from this website
include:
* Rake and remove pine needles and dry leaves within a minimum of 5 feet of a home’s
foundation. As time permits – continue up to a 30 foot distance around the home.
Dispose of collected debris in appropriate trash receptacles.
* Get out your measuring tape and see how close wood piles are located to the home. If
closer than 30 feet, they need to be relocated and moved at least 30’ away from
structures.
* Sweep porches and decks clearing them of leaves and pine needles. Rake under decks,
porches, sheds and play structures and dispose of debris.
* Mow grasses to a height of four inches or less.
* Collect downed tree limbs and broken branches and take them to a disposal site.
* Remove items stored under decks and porches and relocate it to a storage shed, garage,
or basement.
* Join forces with neighbors and pool your resources to pay for a chipper service to remove slash.
* Visit the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association site at rmiia.org and
download free home inventory software. Work together as a family to videotape and
take photos of your possessions – that ensures you’ll have the documentation needed to replace belongings.
