Plan established in Central Texas to reduce wildfire threat

Posted on November 19th, 2014 No Comments

Austin and Travis County established a plan to help reduce fire risk in Central Texas, an article on kxan.com reported November 14.

Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell signed the “Community Wildfire Protection Plan” to help homeowners prevent their home from being damaged by wildfire. Authorities spent two years developing a workable plan to reduce property damage and injuries in the event like this. This new strategy was spurred by the Bastrop and Oak Hill fires almost three years ago. Austin Fire Department wildfire program manager Jim Linardos recommended, among other preventative measures, to regularly clear gutters and promptly dispose of dry leaves and shrubs. The plan is expected to be implemented in other communities in Texas with high wildfire risk.
