Keeping the grasses managed around your house and driveway can significantly impact fire behavior in a wildland event. As a general rule July seems to be the most effective month in our district for getting to the grasses as they are full grown and beginning to cure. Many homeowners use our services annually to trim up to 100ft away from the house, and Pine Brook Hills Home Owners Association have contracted us to keep the grasses low along the major roads in the subdivision, lowering the fire danger along evacuation routes and making the community a safer place.
REMINDER FOR THE HOMEOWNER
The crew serves as the emergency response team responding to emergencies in the Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District, and also to neighboring fire districts. These may include wildland fires, medical emergencies, structure fires, vehicle accidents, and search and rescue operations. So if the crew working on your land disappears rapidly during the day, please be patient they will return to the job site as soon as possible. We are grateful for your support which allows us to maintain this crew on duty during the work day when most of the BMFPD volunteers are at work.
