Join us -- Calif Wildfire Preparedness Week -- May 1-7

Starting tomorrow, let’s join fellow Californians in preparing for fire season. Pull out your chainsaws and weedeaters (or rent them). I just bought a lightweight Makita 10" battery-powered chainsaw and cleared about 50 feet off my driveway. So satisfying to limb up trees and remove scotchbroom and scrub oaks.

Over the past 2 years, more than 6.8 million acres of burned in Calif. Just this year (2022), Cal Fire has responded to more than 1400 wildfires and we’ve already lost 6,500 acres (and it’s April…).

Work with your neighbors or hire people to help. Post photos (before and after) to share in our forum!

Here are a few of my piles that the RCD will chip for free! I’m planning to chip the rest of the piles later this month.

Let’s clear 100 feet around our homes and let’s get started now!
