Firewise Information

Hidden Springs is located in a wildfire environment.  Wildfires will happen - it is a matter of when and where.  In the last 15 years there have been five fires.  Prior to the fire on August 2, 2016, the last fire in Hidden Springs was in the summer of 2008, when a fire was accidentally started by fireworks.

Communities choose to become firewise for many reasons.  Communities whose residents work together have a greater chance of surviving a wildfire.  Working with your neighbors creates greater protection, since the more homes within a community that adopt firewise practices, the more effective the impact on reducing the threat of fire.  It also helps grow community relationships with one another and local fire staff.   Additionally, it can offer peace of mind, knowing that your community is prepared to survive a wildfire.  But, most importantly, it reduces the chances of losing lives, property, and resources from fire.
