Oklahoma City Council members and the Fire Department are teaming up to help property owners reduce the risk of wildfires spreading on their property, particularly those living in rural areas.
“Targeting Wildland Fires” is the topic of three free presentations offered during April to provide tips on wildfire prevention. The meetings will be offered at the following locations:
- Northeast Oklahoma City (Ward 7 – Councilman Skip Kelly):
April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Oakdale School, 11901 N Sooner Rd
- Southwest Oklahoma City (Ward 3 – Councilman Larry McAtee)
April 17 at 7 p.m. at Bridgestone Intermediate Center, 1700 S Council
- Southeast Oklahoma City (Ward 4 – Councilman Pete White)
April 19 at 6:30 p.m. at Harmony Christian Church, 7100 S. Choctaw
The same information will be presented at each meeting.
“We want to teach people simple things they can do to protect their homes, animals and land from the dangers of wildfires,” Fire Chief Keith Bryant said. “We want to reduce the chances of another outbreak of dangerous wildland fires like those we experienced last August.”
The Fire Department is anticipating another dangerous year for wildfires as a result of the predicted weather patterns.
The Oklahoma City firefighters battled 1059 wild and grass fires in 2011. Much of the property damage may have been avoided through proper preparation.
According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, most grassfires in Oklahoma are caused by cigarettes thrown from vehicles, burning trash and children playing with fire.
