Wedgefield Firewise Award
Wedgefield Firewise was established 15 years ago, in our community to help education, give information and training to the community concerning ways to prevent wild fire and its destruction to our property. We have set several great events to kick off 2017.
Firewise Spring Give Away and Property Assessment
Our first event will be twofold. We will be celebrating ‘Firewise Spring Give Away to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, 2017 from 10:am to 2:00pm by giving away free fire resistant plants to the community (while supplies last). We also will be setting appointment for a ‘Property Assessments’ for anyone that would like to have a Florida Forestry Service Employee to come to your home and give you an assessment of the type of fire resistant plants you should have around your property, that would help in the defense of your home should wild fire happen in our community. This is a free service that will be held in the months of April and September 2017. This service is totally free to anyone who live in Wedgefield and will be performed by appointment only. For more information and to make appointments please contact us at email@example.com. Also, look for other activities that will be held throughout the coming year.
We are looking for interested neighbors that would like to work with us to help keep our neighborhood safe and educated on wildfire safety by joining Wedgefield Firewise Community group. We hold monthly meetings every second Thursday of each month at 1:30pm at the Ranger Drainage Building. If you are interested, please join us at any of the monthly meetings. We will really look forward to any help that you are willing to give. You may contact us through our website for more information. Also, follow us on Face Book as information will be update throughout the year.
We look forward to working and sharing with you on this very important issue in helping to keep Wedgefield safe.
