The Christopher/Kohl's Fire District has acquired a 10,000-pound dump trailer for the cleanup effort in conjunction with the Urban Interface Grant.
According to Sam Seay, Fire Department liaison, the trailer is available for vegetation clean up by reserving it at the fire station.
They are hoping to get the State Land Department/Forestry Division to give a Firewise/ Assessment seminar here in Christopher Creek.
The homeowners associations and individual action groups are showing an interest in the Firewise Program, and are moving forward.
If you are interested, contact your homeowner's president or Jerri Glover (928) 478-3544, or Janice Templeton (480) 966-0920 or (928) 478- 4359. They will be able to put you in contact with someone from your area.
