Wildfire Awareness Week ends Saturday in Napa County, according to Napa Firewise and Napa County.
“This is a time to once again think of the consequences of a major wildfire in our community,” said Napa County Fire Marshal Pete Munoa. “For every year that passes, we come that much closer to a natural disaster. Wildfire in California is inevitable. Being prepared is what will make the difference. We can survive wildfire if we have a plan. Now is the time to get ready.”
Napa County and Napa Firewise have been providing Napa County residents with free wildfire information and services since 2005. To date, more than 300,000 cubic yards of vegetation has been chipped at no cost to county residents. This year Napa County and Napa Firewise will continue to provide chipping services, education and special vegetation management projects throughout the county.
