Community Services Safety and prevention area priority of Frenchtown fire. We offer a variety of community services designed to keep citizens of the district prepared.

  • Fuel Mitigation
    Frenchtown Fire regularly applies for and is awarded grant money to help home owners reduce the fuels around their homes, especially the thinning of trees. We've been running a cutting-edge fuel mitigation program for over fifteen years!

    The particulars of the grant changes from year to year, but we are often able to offer home owners a cost share for work done on their property. That is, in order to make our rural neighborhoods safer, the government pays part of the cost of sending a crew to your land. We work with you in making your home more likely to survive a wildfire. Contact Lisa Gottula for details.

  • Fire Safety Information
    Frenchtown Fire is a long-time participant of Firewise Communities, a national group dedicated to fire prevention and citizen safety. Click through for tips on construction, landscaping, and in-home fire safety.
