A Very Successful Firewise Community Work Day!

ECHPOA received the official signs for achieving Recognized Firewise Community status for 2016 and were posted during our Firewise Community Work Day on May 13th.  Many thanks to the 13 volunteers who showed up on such a beautiful day with the tools and the willingness to help mitigate 3 properties for 5 hours!  We are now well on our way to achieving our goals set for 2017 and becoming recognized again this year!  To see more pictures, go to the Firewise page under the Photo Gallery menu option above.  To learn more about how to become Firewise, click on the Firewise menu option above.  We hope to see many more property owners at our next Firewise Community Work Day, date to be determined later.
