Hazardous Fuels Reduction Day Successful
On June 17, 2017 the Fire Department along with the assistance of the Forest Service, several local businesses and property owners in Crown King hosted our annual fuels clean up day to help property owners remove their slash piles and forest debris they had accumulated and cleaned up around their homes.
This special day helped property owners construct and/or maintain defensible space around their homes which helps protect not only their property but the entire town. This event was only made possible with the donations of many within the community.
Through their efforts numerous loads of slash were hauled in pick ups and trailers to the slash transfer station culminating in 62 dump truck loads being removed to the slash disposal site. Thank you to all who took the time to protect your property, and those that assisted in picking up and hauling this material to a safe location. The Crown King community is safer due to your efforts.
