Sunday, August 24, 2014, Sleepy Hollow Fire Protection District and FIRESafe MARIN will sponsor a “Chipper Day” for all residents of Sleepy Hollow. To participate, you must sign up through our SHFPD's new website at www.shfpd.org/chipper-request. Chipper crews will visit your property and dispose of cut vegetation at no cost.
1. Create Defensible Space (it's the law!)
Please review the booklet, “Living With Fire in Sleepy Hollow.” All Sleepy Hollow residents should have received a printed copy by mail in early August, 2014, and a PDF version is available for download here... This new booklet contains valuable information regarding wildfire risk, defensible space, and firescaping in Sleepy Hollow. Additional information on creating Defensible Space is available at www.firesafemarin.org. The law requires that all property owners remove the flammable vegetation on your property to create a defensible space of at least 100 feet (PRC 4291).
