[9/24/21] Manson “Pre-Fire Plans”

Posted in Fire and EMS

Chelan County Fire District 5 in Manson has been working on putting together what are being called “Pre-Fire Plans,” or wildland assessments across the district.  A firefighter has been going to the Ivan Morse Road and Santana areas assessing homes and properties for wildfire danger.  Manson Fire Chief Arnold Baker says the aim is to put the information in a file to be made available when a fire district comes to town so they’ll know which homes are safe from wildfire danger:

Chief Baker says the aim is to get to all homes in Fire District 5.  The assessment project is being funded through a grant from Chelan County Fire District 1.
