Sierra Firewise Program

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.

October is Sierra's Fire Prevention month and 
October 24 (10am-4pm) is our annual
Wildfire Clean-up Day! See details below.

 

For the last several years our Sierra Community has hosted a Clean Up Day in May. This year however, due to Covid 19 restrictions we have postponed Clean Up Day to October 24. In addition we have scaled back our activities to only picking up yard trimmings.
 
This year we plan to limit our free yard pick up to shrub and bush trimming and bagged leaves (no tree trunks or heavy limbs).  If you would like to participate, please do the following:
 
  1. Bag your leaves and yard trimmings.
     
  2. Place your bag/yard trimming at your curb before 10am on October 24.
     
  3. Call George Rush at (509) 607-1036 starting on October 20 to make your reservation for pick up.
     
  4. The Landscape Company that our Firewise Committee has hired is Sunrise Landscaping.
     
  5. Please remember that our fire district, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue, has a levy lid lift on the November ballot. The Firewise Committee reminds you to vote.

Tips, videos, and other resources
to help you keep your home safe
from fire or wildfire
 
Your efforts can truly make a difference in reducing the fire hazard in your own home and in our neighborhood.  This includes properly maintaining your smoke detectors, keeping tall grass and weeds mowed or cut so they don't exceed 8 inches in height, disposing of dead vegetation, tree limbs, etc.
