Even with the wet weather we are having there is still a chance of wildfire. The hotter weather means things are drying out. This means the chance of wildfire is increasing every week. Does your home have the defense measures in place to survive a wildland fire? Please take time to understand what you need to do to better prepare your home in case of a wildland fire.
The Oak Creek Fire Protection District will be happy to come visit with you at your home to do a walk thru home defense inspection. We can help you understand what dangers you have at your home and how to mitigate them. You can also go to Routt County Wildfire Mitigation Council’s website (Resources – Routt County Wildfire Mitigation Council (routtwildfire.org) for more links to resources that can help you with mitigation efforts.
