Pine/Strawberry Fuel Reduction used private donations from fundraisers to purchase Fire-Wise signs that are posted along main ingress and egress routes for citizens living in the communities of Pine and Strawberry. Gila County cooperated in helping to install the signs.
The signs were designed by a local resident and P/SFR member. The idea is to keep fresh in everyone’s mind that wildfire is an ever present danger and that we must be constantly vigilant in order to maintain the gains we make via property clearing. Maintenance is the key to success in fuels reduction. Initial clearing is a one time event while maintaining it is an everyday event.
