Fire Preparedness Opportunity at Low Cost to Property Owners

Fire season will be here soon. Help protect your property and the neighborhood by clearing selected tree or other hazards that increase the risk of fire damage.

It’s easy and it’s inexpensive:

  1. Sign up for a free fire hazard assessment of your property.
  2. Take advantage of available grant funds to reduce your cost of thinning and removing hazardous shrubs or trees.

The organization providing the estimate also applies for and administers the grant funds for you.

With about 80% of that cost covered by grant funds, the cost to you can drop to only about $200 per acre. That’s nothing when compared to the value of your home (or your life).

Arrange for a free estimate:

It’s a lasting investment. Clearing the fuel loading this year can provide lasting value for many years.

Last year, the TRA supported Forest Stewards Guild in obtaining access to the grant funding. Take advantage of this opportunity.

At the annual TRA meeting in December 2016, property owners were advised of simple measures to reduce the risk of a fire impacting your lives or your property. A summary of that presentation appears below on the TRA website: https://tanoroad.org/news/fire-preparedness-goals-for-the-tano-road-area
