The Time For Wildfire Mitigation Is Now
We are in our second red flag warning and we still have 1 1/2" of snow on the ground. That would make alternate evacuation routes next to impossible to use with the snow and mud on them plus they have obstacles on them. The lakes are still frozen so that restricts water resources to drop on fire. That is why it is important to have an individual plan and be diligently working to have defensible space around your home. Without a viable plan to use a homeowner is subject to panic (yourself and others) and taking a less than wise route that could be the road to disaster. It is also important to have an information venue to make those in communities aware of the master plan.
