(Victor Valley)– The San Bernardino County Fire Protection District (SBCoFD), in cooperation with San Bernardino County Public Works, CAL FIRE and Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council, are offering wood chipping throughout the mountain communities prior to the summer and fall, when the threat of wildfire is elevated. In an effort to bolster safety in these areas, these agencies will assist residents in maintaining wildfire safety in their communities.
Residents may drop their tree limbs off at the following locations and times.
Forest Falls | 6/1/20 – 6/5/20
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents are asked to remain in their vehicles. Crews will unload materials from the resident’s vehicle. In the event that a resident must exit their vehicle, they will be required to wear a face covering for the protection of other residents and crews.
Wood chips are available free of charge for resident’s flower beds, front yards and backyards at Fire Station 20 in Lytle Creek. Residents may take what they need. In addition, residents may pick up wood chips at any of the wood chipping locations only on the dates and times listed above.
SBCoFD encourages residents to get prepared for wildfire weather. For safety tips, including creating your Ready! Set! Go! Personal Wildfire Action Plan, visit https://www.sbcfire.org/Programs/ReadySetGoFire.aspx.
