Part of a homeowner’s responsibility is to create a defensible space around your home to help slow the spread of wildfire. Defensible space is the buffer you create around your home by removing the flammable vegetation that surrounds it. Defensible space is also important in helping protect the firefighters defending your home. To help with removal of unwanted debris, Grand County Wildfire Council will be hosting several Chipping Days this summer.
2021 Chipping Days:
- June 12th – Grand Lake (Across from Trail Ridge Marina, 12669 US Hwy 34)
- July 10th – East Grand Fire (77601 US Hwy 40, Fraser)
- July 31st – Grand Lake (Across from Trail Ridge Marina, 12669 US Hwy 34)
- August 21st – Grand Fire (60500 US Hwy 40, Granby)
All dates are Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. Learn more about what materials will be accepted and stay tuned for further location details at bewildfireready.org/community-chipping-days
