The existing fire/fuel mitigation crew eagerly welcomes new recruits, and look forward to sharing the fun and satisfaction of making the park a safer place fire wise for us all to enjoy.
We typically meet at the Maintenance Facility at the “top of the park”. Mitigation Days will typically start at 8:30AM or 9:00AM, depending on time of year and weather. End times are scheduled typically at 2:30PM.
On work days, please wear long pants, sturdy work boots/shoes, gloves, eye protection, plenty of water and a snack or lunch. Depending on the weather, consider rain gear, sunscreen, insect repellant, a hat, and a jacket.
