Help make the community safer
Submitted By Hayward Fire Department
Attend a free Community Defensible Space Training Workshop on January 7, 2012, and help make the community safer before the wildfire season.
Hayward Fire Department has received a grant to improve wildfire safety around the Ward Creek Drainage and Fairview area. Over the next few months we shall ask neighbors to join us to make their neighborhoods a safer place from wildfire.
The community defensible space grant will fund a defensible space training with follow-up work sessions to observe and question contractors as they implement key concepts at demonstration work sites; a planning session to identify and prioritize short- and long-term community fuel reduction projects; and provide funding for fuel reduction for priority projects and a chipping service for neighbors who do their own fuel removal work.
Community members should bring their concerns and awareness of their neighborhood. Help identify areas of for wildfire hazard reduction. For questions, contact Deputy Chief Garrett Contreras at (510) 583-4950 or Cheryl Miller at (510) 536-0143.
