It's easy to participate in the first San Juan Island Firewise Chipper fest program. Each of the Firewise communities can receive a 25 percent discount on a one-day rental of a six-inch chipper from Harbor Rental one time between Sept. 23 and November 30.
The discount will be reimbursed to Harbor Rental by San Juan Island Fire Rescue.
If your community has not yet joined the many Firewise Communities on the Island and wish to do so, please contact Brent Johnson at 378-5334 or BrentJfirewise@hotmail.com.
Firewise Communities ensure that their space on the island is clear of brush and items that may be an obstacle when fire fighting. Firewise signs are posted at the communities. The goal is to have every community join the Firewise program in order to make the island as safe as possible.
