On April 1, 2017 a short training program was presented to department support members. Attendees viewed a "Wildfire preventing Home Ignitions" video, followed by a question and answer session. Each attendee was provided a "West Texas Fire Extinguisher kit". The Fire Extinguisher kits are not a joke. Keep a jug of water in the plastic tub along with a burlap bag. It was suggested that liquid dish soap be added to the water. Fighting small areas can be very effective with the wet burlap bag.
On October 27th, the DMR Firewise community held their 2018 annual meeting. Attendees viewed the video, "Wildfire" and received an Information package to guide their efforts at hardening their property against fire. Training was followed by a Q&A session to answer specific questions, and refreshments were served. If you missed our meeting, and are interested in scheduling a personalized visit to assist you with improving your properties chances of surviving the next fire, please contact the DMRVFD at 426-2800 to set up an
appointment. Thanks to all who attended, and a special thanks to our
support team for making our annual meeting a success.
