The North Fork’s membership in FireWise Communities USA has been renewed for 2012, based on our efforts in 2011. The North Fork has been a member of FireWise since 2006.
One of the requirements for membership is an annual FireWise Day. Last year’s FireWise Day featured a workshop and field trip on forest insects and disease, and their relationship to wildfire.
Members of the Fire Mitigation Committee are planning the North Fork’s 2012 FireWise Day. The event will be held from 9:30a.m. to noon on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 in Sondreson Hall, immediately preceding the Summer Inter Local meeting. The subject this year will be “Stewardship, Forest Health and Hazardous Fuels Reduction.”
