June 21, 2017 BPW Meeting Program
Fire Safety for Your Home and Neighborhoods
Join us on Wednesday, June 21, 5:30 p.m. at Summer Thymes when Joanne Drummond, the award-winning executive director of the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County, will talk about her work in helping our community to reduce the risk of wildfire and keep our homes and neighborhoods safe. Since most of us live in what is considered a Wildland-Urban Interface, this talk will help you understand how you can take steps to protect your home and your family. Handouts and information on fire-resistant landscaping will be provided, along with information on how to find homeowners insurance if your policy is not renewed due to wildfire risk.
In March of this year, Drummond was one of three Californians who received the Wildfire Mitigation Award, the highest commendation for innovation and leadership displayed by individuals and organizations committed to wildfire mitigation. Only 17 awards were presented nationally. Beginning in 2007, she has assisted 20 neighborhood communities in achieving and retaining the prestigious Firewise Community recognition.
