Crescent Park Fire Protection Plan
"We're only as safe as our weakest link." Do you know how your property might fare in a wildfire? The CPCFPA fire protection plan can be found on our website and below embedded in this post. An assessment of our neighborhood's 135 lots and 105 observed structures has established that 93% are at low risk, 5% are at moderate risk and 2% are at high risk of burning down in a wildfire.
Our first annual community connection, education and fundraiser event was a great success. We thank all our sponsors and silent auction item donors as well as Chief Garett Ball for coming out to support us with a strong message about the increased risk of wildfire and the imperative for communities to coordinate mitigation efforts. The funds raised will help us qualify for grants that will benefit all.
We learned how to become a Firewise USA community and how to Be Your Own Hero by taking a few simple steps to create defensible space around your home, harden your home to prevent ignition from flying embers, have an evacuation plan and become involved in our community efforts to reduce wildfire danger for all of us. Be on the lookout for information about our joint efforts with the CPLHOA such as slash collection and fire mitigation days this Summer. You can contact us to volunteer with us, donate money to our collective cause, connect to resources on our webpage, and to review our Fire Protection Plan (see below). And thank you to our volunteer board for all the hard work on this event and all other projects!
