TDFPD has been actively consulting with homeowners since 2006, and we have seen the challenges that people face in our fire district with cutting native brush and trees and/or moving material to the road where it can be hauled away or chipped. To address this problem, the Fire District began our Community Work Days program. The Fire District has set aside one weekend for each of eight major neighborhoods. On that weekend, the Zephyr Fire Crew completes defensible space treatments on publicly owned urban lots and assists any homeowners that need help with their defensible space. Many homeowners simply need a person with a chainsaw to cut some of the taller brush or small trees on the property, and the Zephyr Crew is able to offer that assistance. See this year's Community Work Day scheduled below.
