RCD Offers Rebates for Chipping Services for Fire Protection

The Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County (RCD) has received a small grant from the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District to support chipping services for fuel load reduction in Santa Cruz County. The funding is meant to provide an alternative to burning for communities identified as susceptible to wildfire in the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (2010). Visit the following website to determine if you’re within the designated area http://www.santacruzcountyfire.com/resource_mgmt/cwpp/2010_cwpp_final.pdf

Rebates of up to $800 are available on a competitive basis to reimburse landowners for chipping services. Landowners are responsible for vegetation removal to comply with the 100 foot defensible space requirement. Visit the RCD’s website for more information on creating defensible space. The “Living With Fire Guide” is an essential resource for effective clearing of vegetative fuels around your home. http://www.rcdsantacruz.org/fire-prevention-fuel-load-management
