BVFD Fuels Crew continues firebreak work along China Creek and Blue Slide Roads

With financial assistance from the USDA Community Wildfire Defense Grant awarded to Briceland Fire last year, along with some favorable weather this spring, our Fuels Reduction Crew has been hard at work recently in the China Creek and Blue Slide neighborhoods. We’re creating a shaded fuel break that doubles as a escape route or access for emergency response in case of wildfire and to date we’ve cleared roadside brush and limbed up trees for approximately 3 miles, over thirty acres! There’s more to do so still, so you may see us with our type 6 fire engine and chipper if you’re in the area. Some of the roadway is narrow, so traffic may be impacted while we move through certain areas. Thank you for your patience and support!
