Participant in local VFD which is starting a chipping/disposal program in small rural WUI community. Community previously had some participation in Firewise but hasn’t maintained active efforts. Want to learn simple, feasible ways to improve community safety and survivability. Community is a mix of full and part time residents, mostly older.


VFD acquired access to a large chipper. It has been used on a trial basis. Planned rollout for summer season is to bring machine to properties, with services provided at no charge to residents who support the VFD.
