Did the recent brush fire that scorched Richmond Beach concern you? It should! Though major property damage was quickly and efficiently avoided by Shoreline Firefighters – it could have been much worse.  

Wind conditions changed quickly and firefighting tactics are challenging when fire engines cannot get close to the scene. Shoreline Fire and the National Fire Protection Administration urge all residents to be “firewise” when it comes to mitigating the damages caused by wild and brush fires.

There ARE steps you can take to protect your home and property – from cleaning up all debris and brush, to planting fire-resistant plants near your residence.

Make last week’s incident in Richmond Beach a wake-up call. Check out the NFPA’s Firewise website and prepare yourself and protect your property.
