The grass is still mostly green and the dirt is still wet in the morning, especially after the rain over the weekend.
But as hard as it is to believe, Fire Season is coming up quick, say Southern Marin Fire District officials. It’s that time again to start clearing your Defensible Space around your home, they said, so get ahead of the curve and take on that vegetation while it is still manageable early in the season.
While there is a long list of maintenance items for fire season, these simple ones can easily be forgotten:
- Clean your gutters and roof – Not just an early spring chore, this simple step removes a fuel bed from spreading fires.
- Visible address numbers – This simple addition can keep you and your family safer by ensuring your home can be found. Order your Address Sign.
- Clear brush around driveway and home – Allow Southern Marin Fire District firefighters to better protect your home by ensuring full access.
