The OSFM wants to remind residents to make sure their homes are protected from wildfire. The start of spring is a good time to take these steps:
- Keep roofs, gutters, and eaves clear of all leaves, pine needles, and other flammable debris.
- Remove dead vegetation a minimum of 30 feet around your house.
- Prune trees and have grass kept short and green to keep fire on the ground and more manageable by firecrews.
