Local Fire Danger: Medium
Chipping Program Winds Down....For Now
The latest chipping program has been a great success. The Deer Springs Fire Safe Council
chipped 354,881 cubic feet of hazardous vegetation during the current grant period. Property owners cut the vegetation and the
DSFSC provided a crew to chip the material on site. The grant has been expended for this year and an application for continuing
funds has been submitted for 2014. Click on the thumbnails below for before and after photos from two example clearing locations.

Fire Safety News is Now Digital!
It is coming to your inbox rather than your mailbox. The first issue is out and we plan to publish
it on a monthly basis. We will publish extra editions when we have important information to share. We also will be issuing occasional
Fire Safety Alerts in the event of an emergency situation.
In the past, the Fire Safe Council published the News
as a print edition. For many reasons, such as cost, ease of use, and timeliness, the council has chosen to publish the Fire Safety
News as an email. If you did not receive our first issue, you are not signed up and you need to register. Please click
on the Fire Safety News "SUBSCRIBE" button to the left to sign up. Click on the Fire Safety News icon to see the most
recent issue as well as back issues.
Even though it is winter, the wildfire danger remains elevated as we are
in the third year of a drought. Registering for Fire Safety News will allow us to update you on local weather conditions, fires or
other events that could impact residents of the Deer Springs Fire District.
