Hazardous Fuels Clean Up Day June 18th
The Fire Department, with the assistance of the Forest Service, several local businesses and property owners in Crown King and this year Michael Strieby who is working on his Eagle Scout Project will be hosting a special community Fuels Clean Up Day to help property owners remove their slash. If you are a homeowner, this is the perfect opportunity for you to clean up the forest debris that has accumulated around your property and poses a risk to your home in the event of a wildland fire.
If you have performed or had fuels reduction treatment work completed on your property int he past, this clean up day provides you with the means to maintain the work that has been accomplished.
Slash consists of needles, limbs and small trees less than 4 inches in diameter that have been removed to provide defensible space around your home. This special day we will load and haul your cutting to the slash disposal site or chip them if possible. In order to help the most properties, you will need to have your slash stacked by the side of the road where crew members can easily load dump trucks and trailers to haul it away, and/or chip it. We also ask that you separate needles from other branches and slash so that we may reduce the time it takes to load or chip material.
If you would like to help pick up or have a truck to assist in hauling material to the slash site, please stop by or call us at Station 1. If you would like to sign up for forest debris to be hauled from your property, please call or stop by Station 1 by June 15th so that we can be sure to include your property on our schedule. Working together we will help improve the forest health and reduce the hazardous fuels now found. There will be a pot luck at Station 1 right after the clean up effort.
