Quincy Firewise is a local volunteer group trying to create a more fire aware and fire prepared community. Quincy Firewise invites all Quincy residents to engage with these efforts and attend its monthly Firewise gathering. This month Quincy Firewise leads, Mike Flanigan and Richard Stockton, will provide Quincy Firewise updates. Greg Kinne, former contractor and active Plumas Underburn Cooperative member, will give a presentation on defensible space and home hardening. Greg will discuss the defensible zones, appropriate vegetation spacing and will take questions. Mike Flanigan will then review the Firewise reporting tool. Lastly, there will be a prize raffle to win the well-reviewed RPM Beast Rake specifically designed to rake pine needles.
Quincy Firewise continues to meet monthly to provide guest speakers and share up to date information on home/property insurance, evacuation preparedness, home hardening, creating defensible space zones around homes and structures, pile burning tips and the Plumas Underburn Cooperative (PUC).
If you are passionate about building relationships with your peers while participating in collective actions to protect the community from wildfire, Firewise welcomes you to join each month and to bring a friend and neighbor.
When: Wednesday, May 25, from 5-6 p.m. (meetings are scheduled the 4th Wednesday of every month)
Where: West End Theatre inside of Quintopia
