Protect Your Home from Wildfire

 

Snow still covers much of the ground in Ferry County, but warmer, drier weather is ahead and with it, another fire season.  It is not too early to think about protecting your home from the devastating effects of wildfires. Though the funding cycle for the District's Firewise program has ended, we can help you reduce your risks. Click here to read an article about Firewise principles. 

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 an application and more info on cost-share projects.
