YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Homeowners can make their own properties and their communities much safer from wildfire by practicing Wildfire Risk Reduction.
Based on current fire behavior and weather forecasts, the KVFD is asking homeowners in Kaleden, St. Andrews, and surrounding areas to be EXTRA VIGILANT in preparing their properties against wildfires.
Here are a few action items recommended by FIRESMART:
inspect the roof/eaves and vents
keep gutters clean and free of leaves, pine needles
move woodpiles away from your home
trim tree branches minimum 3 metres from ground
clean under decks, move construction material, trash
keep your lawn hydrated and maintained
keep on site fire tools handy. Every home should have readily accessible shovels, garden hoses, sprinklers and ladders for suppressing a small fire that may start
have a GRAB & GO BAG ready at the door
If you have small pets, have a kennel close by
