Welcome to the NRG Firewise Forum!

If you’re concerned about wildfires and confused by what you need to do to protect your homes and your family, you’re not alone. That’s why we created this forum; it’s just for the North Rodeo Gulch FireWise community.

I’ll post emergency information to quickly get messages about evacuation, shelter-in-place, and other vital plans. This forum also creates a friendly place where we can all ask and answer questions that affect our neighborhood.

Share your stories about what you’ve done to protect your homes. Let’s work together to clear 5 feet, 30 feet, and 100 feet from our structures.

Thanks for joining the conversation!


Here on a finger ridge at the top of RGR we have done many things… installed all the proper signage, taken down trees more than 100+ feet away from structures and cut all brush etc. we installed a sprinkler on top of the roof that covers the entire house. We have one road out and will depend on our neighbors to alert us if there is a fire. Thanks to Susan for all the work on this project!

Excellent! We are working on roof sprinklers. What are you using for a pump to lift the water and maintain enough pressure?

Wow! That is incredible that you’ve cleared more than 100 feet away from structures and cut all your brush! Do you have any photos you can share? This is really inspirational! Will your sprinklers work if the power is out?

Hope you’re going to join us at the NRG Firewise event on Saturday. We’ll be discussing communication using ham/MURS radios and our Micro Communities. This is a perfect example of why it’s so important to join your Micro Community! Hope to see you there!

Gravity feed - no pump needed. But Scotts Valley Sprinkler should have pumps

Thanks! I’ll check Scotts Valley Sprinkler.
