“This is a busy time for many rural homeowners; getting ready for fire season. From cleaning needles off the roof to thinning your forest, managing the fuels is the key.” said Rich Fairbanks, a local fire professional with over 40 years of experience in fire suppression and forest management. “We should start now, well ahead of the next wildfire.”
“The best time to prepare for wildfire is before the fire starts,” said Alexi Lovechio with the conservation group KS Wild who was the lead editor of the toolkit. “We asked the leading experts and worked with community groups to assemble important information about key agencies and wildfire preparation resources in the Siskiyou region.”
