Creating a Fire Adapted Home

Written by: 
GCLD Staff

East Grand Fire and Rescue LogoThe Grand County Wildfire Council, East Grand Fire Protection District, and the Grand County Library District invite you to a wildland fire mitigation workshop called, "Creating a Fire Adapted Home." 

Wildfire is everyone's responsibility. Being a fire adapted community means that everyone in the community - homeowners, firefighters, land managers, and civic leaders - has done their part to prepare for the next wildland fire. This FREE workshop will address how you, the homeowner, can do your part to make your home, your community and ultimately, Grand County more fire adapted. Light refreshments will be served.

Join us on Thursday, October 8th, from 6:00 - 7:30 pm at the Fraser Valley Library for this FREE workshop.
