Subject: prevent wildfire destruction with these landscaping tips!

Along with drought comes the dangers of wildfires. The likelihood of a home burning is directly related to the amount of flammable material near it. The home and landscape near it are called the home ignition zone. Property owners can assist firefighters and improve their own safety by preparing their structures and landscape for the possibility of a wildfire. Here are a few tips to keep your home safe.
Replace wood roofs with fire-resistant roofing material. Enclose the eaves with soffits and screen openings with 1/8” galvanized mesh. This will reduce the chances that blowing embers could start a fire in an attic space.
Regularly clear debris from roof valleys, gutters, and deck corners.
Select appropriate species to grow in the home ignition zone. Evergreens and scrub oaks tend to be highly flammable, while aspen and most broad-leaved trees and shrubs are less flammable. Plants that are green and moist during the hottest, driest part of the year are best.
Keep firewood, construction material, and other flammable items at least 30 feet from your home. Be sure propane tanks are located at least 100 feet from any structure, and clear the vegetation 10 feet around them.
Explore more tips on how to prevent wildfire destruction here. More drought and water conservation tips are available on our Utah Drought website.

All our best,

Lost Quaker Parrot Named Tiki

Please call or email asap if you have seen or heard Tiki, the Quaker Parrot who escaped his Logan home on Monday.

From: Loy Moser

Tiki is a Quaker Parrot. We got him from PetSmart about 14 years ago. Once about ten years ago he got out and flew to nearest tree and we had to climb up and get him. He has not been outside since. He flew out of the house Monday morning about 10 a.m. He is tame and we are worried. He was last seen near our home at 690 North 150 W, Logan Utah. He knows his name and may respond. He has a band on his right leg. We have his certificates and can provide the number on his band. My name is Loy Moser, my number is 435-764-2343

Thank you,
Loy
