With spring in our midst finally, we know that you are all anxious to get rid of that winter debris that might be laying around in your yards... Here are some safety tips to remember for this spring clean up season:


  • On average, 976 brush, grass, or forest fires were reported per day in the United States. 
  • Keep weeds and grass cut.
  • Provide enough water to keep plants healthy and green. Keep irrigation systems in good 
    working order.
  • Remove dead and piled up vegetation, and dispose of it properly. 
  • Properly dispose of trash and debris.
  • Stack anything and everything that is being put away for storage away from structures, fences, or any 
    other combustible materials.
  • Create at least 30 foot safe zone around your home that is free of anything that may ignite 
    and spread to the structure. 
  • Keep the roof clear. Sweep gutters and eaves, and wash the roof on a regular basis to get 
    rid of dry needles and leaves.
  • Trim dead wood off trees that are located close to the residence.
  • Avoid parking cars, trucks or recreational vehicles on dry grass or brush. Exhaust systems 
    on vehicles can reach a temperature of more than 1,000 degrees; it only takes about 500 
    degrees to start a brush fire in hotter weather.
  • Maintain a 10-foot area that is free of brush and shrubbery around grills and propane tanks.
  • ALWAYS dispose of cigarettes carefully. Do not ever drop cigarettes or matches that are not 
    fully extinguished.
