...and thanks to Harry Steele from the Idaho Department of Lands, we'll be better prepared. The FireWise workshop at the Hall was very well attended, the Sheriff, a Commissioner, a couple of Fire Chiefs and lots of homeowners now understand that it is our personal responsibility to help protect our homes against wildfire. With limited resources when a wildfire occurs, the safety of our homes is up to us. Harry and a DVD, gave several tips on what we can do to protect our property. Some easy but important suggestions were to rake up all pine needles around your buildings, clean out rain gutters, remove all wood stacked against buildings, create a defensible perimeter and have a convenient water source available (full water troughs) in the event of loss of power. We appreciate her time and the valuable information she shared with us.
