Stinson Beach School Fuel Break
COMMUNITIES: Stinson Beach
INTERFACE: Golden Gate National Recreation Area
FIRE DISTRICT: Stinson Beach Fire Protection District
FUNDING PROVIDED: $11,000 (FY 2003)
OBJECTIVE: To create a defensible space for the town via the removal of hazardous fuels around Stinson Beach School and areas in the Highlands.
DESCRIPTION: Conduct hazardous fuel removal along NPS/Stinson Beach property line in two areas - the Stinson Beach School and Willow Camp Fire Road. In a wildland fire emergency, the defensible space would provide local firefighters with more time to fight the fire, and in the on-going work to create a safe environment will encourage homeowners to prepare defensible spaces for their own property.
