There are simple things everyone can do to help protect their homes and properties from wildfire.  Check out the following information from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):

For more info visit the NFPA website, and see the other news and resources below.

 

Also - remember to mow your lots to help prevent the spread of wildfire in the neighborhood  

Your continued efforts are appreciated in helping reduce the fire hazard in our neighborhood.  This includes keeping tall grass and weeds mowed or cut so they don't exceed 8 inches in height.  Also, disposing of dead vegetation, tree limbs, etc., can help reduce potential fuel sources. 
 
Sierra received its official Firewise Community status in 2017 and has continued to maintain that status.  Please see the following for more information about the program and what you can do to keep your home or lot and our neighborhood safe from wildfire.
