Community Invited to Attend Herbicide Workshop ~From Pat Kaunert

Sonora, CA....Fire Safe Council President Jerry Tannhauser today announced that on Saturday, April 18, 2009, the Highway 108 FireSafe Council is inviting homeowners in the Sonora area, as well as surrounding communities, to spend an interesting morning learning about herbicides as a tool to effectively reduce flammable vegetation and restore fire safe landscaping around homes. The workshop is scheduled to be held Saturday, April 18, 2009, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm, Saint Patrick’s Hall, on Jackson Street in Sonora....



Industry experts, local merchants, Tuolumne County Agricultural Commissioner, and University of California Cooperative Extension representatives will explain and demonstrate the correct storage and application of herbicides. The session will showcase the most effective application tools, and herbicide products for removing grass, thistle, bear clover, Manzanita, white thorn, and other flammable plants, to improve defensible space around homes, and help provide an extra margin of safety against threatening wildfires.

This is a hands-on session for homeowners. A panel of local agency officials and industry representatives will explain “how-to” select and use herbicides as an effective fire prevention tool to create a defensible space around homes and controlling unwanted, noxious weeds. The panel will cover the county permitting process, correct herbicide selection for the type of vegetation, various methods of application, correct timing for effectiveness, and precautions for soil, water, and wildlife.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide private landowners and local fire agency officials the opportunity to discuss, consider, and form a strategic planning link that connects fire protection, emergency access routes, defensible space around homes, and learn about fire prevention measures to protect life, property, and resources from wildland fires. Special focus is placed on the requirements under California Public Resources Code 4291 to ensure a 100-foot defensible space around homes.

The FireSafe Council now meets quarterly, seeking ideas and comments from local community residents to help fire agencies identify and address the wildland fire danger present on private property located within the city, county and state responsibility areas protected by the City of Sonora, Tuolumne County Fire Department, CAL FIRE (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection), and local fire districts, as well as wildland interface direct protection areas of public lands administered by the and USDA Forest Service and USDI Bureau of Land Management.
