Each week, we share a practical landscaping or building tip from the Village’s Fire Resilient Community Fact Sheet. 

Fire resilient rebuilding Tip #6:Limit ground-level openings where fine debris and embers can gather; sheath the base of decks and balconies with fire-resistant material to reduce the risk of sparks and embers igniting your home.

Embers can collect under decks, so be sure to enclose the areas and, more importantly, remove fuel that may accumulate underneath them.

Find other fire resilient rebuilding tips in the fact sheet online or pick up a copy at the Village Office or Parish Hall.
