Set your calendars and make plans to participate in the Second Annual Firewise Day, May 20, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pine Community Center (3886 N. Highway 87, Pine, AZ).
This event will feature practical tips to help property owners reduce the risk of a devastating fire, as well as other helpful information. There is no charge to attend.
The family-oriented event will also feature activities for kids and adults. A few of the participants will be:
- Tonto Rim Search & Rescue, which will demonstrate the drone they use in their search and rescue efforts.
- The Pine Strawberry Fire Department Clowns, who are always entertaining, and help kids learn about the dangers of fire and how to be safe through games and interaction.
- Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction will have educational information, including materials for kids.
- Delicious BBQ lunch for only $5, courtesy of Farm Bureau Financial Services Agent Duane Ridl; 100% of proceeds will go to fire reduction activities.
More organizations are expected to attend with demonstrations, activities and useful information.
