In 2016, The Pinery became a certified
FIREWISE USA community!
FIREWISE USA is a national recognition program that helps communities take action and ownership in preparing and protecting their homes against the threat of wildfire. We live in a high-risk wildfire area and need to work together to do all we can to reduce the risk of wildfire destruction to our homes and families.
What does this mean?
If we, as a community, maintain our FIREWISE status, it means that:
- you may qualify for a reduction in your homeowner’s insurance premium;
- you may qualify for a Colorado State income tax deduction.
All South Metro homes are eligible for a FREE fire mitigation property assessment to reduce the risk of wildfire damage. Schedule an appointment by emailing Einar.Jensen@southmetro.org.
So that the Pinery can continue to maintain its
FIREWISE USA status WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Homeowners can help by reporting time spent on risk reduction activities on their property. These activities may be as simple as raking up pine needles and/or leaves or by pruning dead branches from trees. Continue to watch this site for updated information.
