The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted last week to proclaim May as Yavapai County’s Wildfire Community Preparedness Month. The proclamation highlights the unique risks posed by wildfire, and the preparedness measures citizens can take to mitigate the potential hazard.
Wildfires are never out of season, and now is the time to create defensible space around your home. Cut away vegetation 5 to 30 feet from all structures. Remove all debris and dead vegetation from roofs, decks, and the ground around your home.
