Home Fire Safety
The Echo Lake Community Group is focusing on residential home fire prevention and natural fire mitigation.
The Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue (SRFR) public information team led by Kaitlin King and Deputy Chief Michael McConnell gave a very informative (and fun!) presentation regarding methods to minimize fire impact from wildfires or even localized property fires. Their experience with fire danger mitigation in the Northwest was evident with the depth of their knowledge and their practical ideas on how we make changes around the exteriors of our homes to reduce fire risk. The slides from our special presentation can be found HERE.
You will find below several powerful and useful aids to protect you and your family from fire.
