The Landrum area is one that has been shaped by fire.
Bill Wylie is the Upstate’s Firewise Coordinator for the South Carolina Forestry Commission, and he recently spoke to Landrum Area Fire and Rescue District residents to discuss how to create home landscapes that are less prone to fuel fire.
Among the topics he discussed were:
- Wildfire Hazards and Risk Assessments
- Structure Ignitability
- Defensible Spaces
- Fuel Mitigation Zones
- Plant Flammability
- Informational Resources
- Relative Risks within the Landrum Area Fire and Rescue District
- Underground Electrical Transformers / Junction Boxes
- “Ready, Set, Go!” Program Information
