What's Happening

Dewey-Humboldt is a group of individuals with a passion to educate and serve it's community regarding everything pertaining to fire safety.  Most of our committe members are either native westerners or long term transplants knowing all too well the havoc fire can bring to a community.  Some have experienced evacuation while others  lent support to family and friends during such a time.  

It is our hope through various outreach efforts, we can bring home this message by implementing our current and forthcoming events and projects.

Survivable Space

Most recently, the National Fire Protection Association no longer uses the term "defensible space."  They now refer to it as "survivable space."  The rationale per retired Prescott Fire Marshall Don Devendorf is "you're not really defending anything if you don't survive." Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority Fire Marshall Rick Chase said CAFMA talks with people about taking care of their properties and creating a survivable space within 30 feet of their properties.

 

Since Dewey-Humboldt Firewise began in 2016 the town has received $ in abatement grant (creating survivable space) funding, allowing for # acreas to be more "survivable."  As of February 2020 we have utilized all current grant funds and are waiting to hear what we can apply for going forward.

Let's talk about your home and additional property structures.  During a recent training by the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management we learned how so many more factors come into play when protecting your home.  We have posted a number of websites for reference regarding what you can do to prepare your home and outbuilding structures.
