Question: Why should we do this? Answer: If you take the few minutes to fill out the forms you will be saving yourself the outlay of monies in the future. Grants can allow for the much-needed cleanup of our greenbelt areas. You can include cleaning gutters, picking up branches from the winter storms. Any and all removal of something that would burn during a fire.

Question: What is the time frame for this information to be documented? Answer: We will be doing this on an ongoing basis. Last years data is still good. You can turn in as many time sheets as are necessary to document your work. Each year we will total the numbers and that total time can be used for any grant submitted in mat year.

Question: What is a Firewise Assessment?  There are relatively simple things that you can do to protect your property during a wildfire.  If you ask for a FREE Firewise Assessment we will come out and go through a check sheet and provide you some valuable information that could make the difference during a wildfire.  Just check the box at the bottom of the form and submit it and we will contact you to setup a time.
