Businesses Get Creative To Survive Fire Season


Smoke is billowing into the sky and settling in all around us. Our first instincts might be to hunker down and ride out the fire.

That is exactly what we shouldn't be doing. We need to make sure the fire doesn't make our Rim country economy its victim.

With roads closures and forests restricted, many of the area's merchants are suffering. Take matters into your own hands -- support your neighbors and their businesses.

The following businesses are offering specials to welcome you to their stores and services:
