“Wildfires … … what to do?”
It appears that our Spring rains are over, and any time now, our forests and wildlands will be tender dry.
And, since we live on the edge of a working forest, we are lucky to have Fire Prevention expert Kyle Reed from the Douglas Forest Protective Association here to talk to us on Friday, 5/17, 3 p.m. in the Clubhouse.
DFPA is a private, non-profit corporation which is responsible for wildfire prevention, detection and suppression activities on 1.6 million acres of private, county, state, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Indian Affairs lands within the Douglas District.
Reed will give a brief overview on the DFPA and a look back at recent fire seasons. He will talk about fire season restrictions, give suggestions on defensible space, and evacuation information.
Mark your calendars for Friday, 5/17, 3 p.m. in the Clubhouse. This is also the weekly Friendship Hour, so remember to bring a pot luck snack to share.
