Emergency Information Resources

Please put  Knox box on electronic gates for easy emergency services access or leave gate open during emergencies.   Consider Firewise community recommendations like clearing 30 feet from property.  Remove underbrush. Remove excess trees to allow trucks to access property.  Piles of cedar chips and mulch piles can catch fire with decomposition. Disperse them and check any you may have for heat build-up.
