DNR Forester Ranger Jacob Bonack will give a presentation about fire safety and property protection Tuesday, June 4, at 7 p.m. at the Sloan Center in Lake Tomahawk.
The FIREWISE brochure reads, “Wisconsin homeowners are protecting their forested homes by preparing their home ignition zones well in advance of flames.”
Bonack will discuss simple steps landowners can take to help protect their homes in the event of a forest fire. He will also discuss burn permits, alternatives to burning leaves and brush, and safety recommendations if landowners choose to burn. The presentation will include a video that is approximately 10 minutes long. Handouts will be available.
The presentation is free of charge. For more information, call Catherine Parker, Lake Tomahawk supervisor, at (715) 277-4198.
