Prep Work Has Already Begun Ahead of the Coming Utah Wildfire Season

Posted April 3rd, 2013 @ 11:39am by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

State and federal wildfire fighters have begun preparing for our summer burn season.

BLM Fire Mitigation Specialist Nick Howell says crews are clearing dry brush and dead trees from near homes -- particularly in Southern Utah, where most of the danger has been identified.

Fire officials are also reminding home and cabin owners, now is the time you should be brush-clearing, to avoid problems later.

Officials say federal grant funding is available to assist property owners in making their homes more wildfire defensible.
