All residents and business owners alike are encouraged to take action to ensure their properties are well-tended to throughout the year, to prevent and reduce fires should they happen. 

The Town's website offers information, resources, and tools on how to prepare your property to prevent fires from occurring and spreading. We encourage everyone to Be Prepared, Know What to Do, and Help your Neighbors.
