Protect Your Home from Wildfire

Our fire season has begun. If you have not already started making your home defensible from the devastating effects of wildfire, it is time to start.  Click here to read an article about Firewise principles (slightly dated but still relevant). 


The Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has additional information on its website.  The website has information on Firewise principles, including an informative video and includes contact information for local DNR foresters.   DNR may be able to provide wildfire risk assessments and cost-share funding for fuel reduction projects on your property.  Click here for  info on cost-share projects.

Please contact the Ferry Conservation District (509-775-3473, ext 109 or bill.chamberlin@conservewa.net) if you need additional information or assistance with implementing Firewise principles.  We can help!
