EMIFPA Fire Info - Green Waste Days

03/17/2016 2:32 PM | Nancy Carpenter

EM Residents,


     Bernalillo County has announced the first free Green Waste Days of 2016. This will take place from April 2 through April 17, 2016. All loads have to be delivered to the EM Transfer Station between 8 am and 4 pm, and all loads MUST be covered.


     EMIFPA welcomes this opportunity to help you work on your defensible space projects. But, we caution all EM residents that we are in high fire danger conditions. Please take all necessary precautions when doing projects using chain saws and other gas powered tools. Do not do any projects on "red flag" days. The fuel moisture of our forests are becoming dangerously low. Coupled with low humidity, high winds, and above average temperatures, a careless spark can have catastrophic consequences. Check the NOAA web site (http://www.srh.noaa.gov/abq/) daily before you start any defensible space project that uses tools having spark potential.
