This presentation is part of the Northwest Roadway Safety, Fuels Reduction, and Community Chipper and Engagement Project, a Sonoma County Transportation and Public Works grant funded project. The project is intended to reduce risks related to future wildfires by removing vegetation identified as hazards to firefighters and the public, in the interest of creating safe and smooth evacuations during an emergency. As part of this project, Fire Safe Sonoma is providing education and outreach efforts to encourage property owners in the targeted area to clear hazardous vegetation from their properties and to take advantage of the Sonoma County Fire Chipper Program.
The Northwest Roadway Safety, Fuels Reduction, and Community Chipper and Engagement Project is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment— particularly in disadvantaged communities.
