Is your property at risk of wildfires? A no-cost assessment can help you find out
Excerpt via The Olympian, and Yahoo!:
Are you ready for wildfire season in Washington?
If the answer is no, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources may be able to help.
…, DNR announced the expansion of its Wildfire Ready Neighbors, a collaborative program to prepare property owners at risk of wildfires.
“It doesn’t matter where you live, no one is immune from the danger of wildfires,” said Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz. “Last year’s Bolt Creek, Goat Rocks and Nakia Creek fires are just a few examples of recent fires that threatened homes and properties in Western Washington.”
Residents in Pierce, Thurston and Mason counties will be eligible starting this spring to request a no-cost assessment of their properties for wildfire potential, as well as to have a specific wildfire mitigation plan developed for their areas by wildfire experts. Residents can sign up for customized action plans at WildfireReady.com.
Information about local resources and contractors also will be made available for residents.
