“Earth Day and Fire Safety”

Central Fire Protection District would like to remind everyone that Earth Day is observed on April 22nd. Earth Day reminds us to act locally, but think globally in regards to caring for our wildland areas and open spaces. By observing some “Earth Day Safety Tips” you can also effectively prepare for the coming fire season.  A wildfire can start in grass, brush, shrubs or forests. By being fire safe around your home, you may actually help to prevent wildfires.

Some “Earth Day Safety Tips” are:

  1. Remove dead leaves, brush, sticks and pine needles from your lawn.
  2. Plant fire resistant flowers and shrubs around your home.
  3. Remove leaves, twigs or pine needles from under your deck or porch.
  4. Make sure that plants and shrubs are watered regularly.
  5. Remove all piles collected yard debris from your property or place in a green waste bin for collection.

More fire safety information can be found on our website at or contact the Fire Prevention Division at 831-479-6843.
