A note from Molly Shepherd of the NFLA’s Fire Mitigation Committee . . .
We had a phenomenal year: $132, 544 total “investment,” reflecting both hours and expenses contributed by the North Fork community. Our required minimum Investment was $12,240. The value of our investment per dwelling unit was $294.54; we were required to have a minimum of $27.20, or $1 per dwelling unit.
The Hay Creek fire, and encouraging people to submit their Firewise-qualifying hours and expenses, accounted for our higher numbers this year. I suspect that many hours weren’t reported, however.
Thank you all for your contributions and your support of the North Fork’s Firewise program. And have a happy Thanksgiving!
