Make your community more fire-safe
Submitted By Hayward Fire Department
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 work with us to make their neighborhoods a safer place from wildfire. The community defensible space grant will fund: 1) A planning session to identify and prioritize short- and long-term community fuel/brush reduction projects of which up to four will be funded for work this Spring; 2) Fuel/brush reduction for priority projects and a chipping service for neighbors who undertake their own fuel/brush removal work.
Join us at a planning session for community fuel-reduction activities on February 25, 2012 at the Woodland Estates Community Association Club House. Bring your concerns and awareness of your neighborhood. Help identify areas for wildfire hazard reduction. If you cannot attend the meeting, you can send your suggestions and concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information or questions, contact Deputy Chief Garrett Contreras at (510) 583-4950 or Cheryl Miller at (510) 536-0143.
