COVID-19 and Wildfire
The COVID-19 virus event is putting pressure on us all in many different ways. The guidance and efforts to slow or stop the spread of the virus seems to be changing daily. These are uncertain times and we don’t want to add to our troubles. Starting a wildfire now would take important resources away from current emergency work and potentially expose first responders to the virus. Extra caution needs to be used with any use of fire (camp fire or debris burn etc.) and choosing alternatives to burning is even a better idea. Chip, mulch or hauling the material is preferred.
