Firewise Investment

Star Ranch Firewise Risk Reduction Investment Status and Reporting

Star Ranch is at 393.4% of the annual investment commitment.

Please add your efforts to the Ranch’s risk reduction investment commitment on this page.

There are dozens of Firewise activities that can be reported against out investment commitment. More detailed lists are below the form. Activities such as removing brush, cleaning gutters, buying fire extinguishers, etc etc all qualify to maintain our In Good Standing status.

The biggest question may be how to answer the “How much” question. For the moment, please report how many trips to the burn pile you made and what you used to transport the vegetation. That will get things started.

Note: This form is a preliminary version, subject to change as feedback is received.
