In the event of a wildfire or a house fire, burning embers can fall on homes and ignite leaves and other debris resulting in additional loss. Your Sun City Texas Firewise program has been working for more than nine years to keep your community safe and educated about the steps you can take to protect your home from such a disaster. We’re among the 1,400 recognized Firewise communities in the nation and we work with leading experts including Firewise USA, the Texas A&M Forestry Service, Georgetown Fire Department, Williamson County Emergency Management and others. Join us to learn about recent updates you can use to keep your home Firewise.
Guest speakers include:
- Rob Galbraith, Director of Property Underwriting at USAA, will discuss USAA’s reduction in the fire coverage premium.
- Kari Hines, Wildland Urban Interface Specialist with Texas A&M Forest Service, will discuss how a community qualifies as Firewise.
- Georgetown Fire Department will offer an update on their programs and activities and may have equipment on display.
- Dan Dodson, Education Coordinator for the Sun City Firewise Group, will discuss recent updates in how residents can work to make their homes Firewise.
These meetings will be carried live on Channel 18 for those with Suddenlink, or following the meeting the video will be uploaded to the website under Communications > Videos > Town Hall Videos. They will also be rerun on Channel 18 each evening at 8 p.m., unless there is a previously scheduled program
