Fall Firewise Facts

September is here and the leaves are beginning to fall!  While we welcome the cooler temperatures and the beauty that is the autumn season in Montreat, we will also have a lot of dead leaves on the ground.  Did you know that leaves are the #1 accelerant for wildfires?  They are highly flammable and of course in Montreat they are everywhere!  Please take care to remove the leaves and other yard debris from around your house.  Also, be sure to report your work hours to Nancy Midgette ([email protected]).  We want to be sure that we are eligible to have our FireWise status renewed!

By the way, if you spent time in the yard and garden over the summer, estimate your hours and send them to Nancy to help with our Firewise renewal.
