May 4, 2019 was Wild­fire Com­mu­ni­ty Pre­pared­ness Day and the Mitchell Point Fire­wise Com­mu­ni­ty on San Juan Island received a $500.00 grant from the Nation­al Fire Pro­tec­tion Asso­ci­a­tion and State Farm Insur­ance to help fund their “Chip­per Day.”

With the fund­ing award and addi­tion­al mon­ey con­tributed by com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers, the neigh­bor­hood hired Ben Bai­ley of Island Grind to assist in the clean up and removal of large quan­ti­ties of dead branch­es and lad­der fuels.

Res­i­dents col­lect­ed the debris dur­ing the month pri­or to the actu­al removal date and the vol­ume after chip­ping was over 15 yards.
