The rural and wooded nature of our community is vulnerable to wildland fire, especially in drought conditions.  It is crucial that you take the necessary steps to prepare your family in the event that a rapid evacuation becomes necessary.  Steps taken to reduce the potential for fire ignition on and around your home and work to provide a defensible space around your home may make the difference between a heap of ashes and an undamaged home following a wildland fire.
