Springtime along the Ebbetts Pass Highway 4 Corridor means family and friends coming to visit getting ready for the summer. This is also a time when we spend a considerable amount of time preparing and cleaning our homes and lots to defend against potential fire related threats. Escaped debris burns, wildland fires, lighting strikes are just some of the concerns we think about come springtime.
To ensure a safe defense for your home as you get ready for summer Please consider:
1. If you do burn debris follow directions on the burn permit and be sure the fire is out before you leave.
2. Clear around your home for “Defensible Space.”
3. Reduce fire fuel on your unimproved lot.
Enjoy your summer and if you have any questions about cleaning a defending your home for the summer, please give us a call at 795-1646.
