Home- owners need to assess their home's ability to survive an ember blizzard from fire- brands that may come from up to a mile away. According to Mike DeLasaux, council chairman, "The best way to evaluate your home's preparedness for an ember blizzard is by walking around your home and thinking about what would happen if you just started throwing matches." Flying (match-like) fire- brands will blow into arid around the home, igniting any available combustible material. Homes can be at risk if they have firewood next to the structure, needles in the gutters and on the roof, unscreened vents, material stored under decks and even patio furniture. DeLasaux went on to say, "Creating a Firewise home cannot only determine your home's ability to survive a wildfire, but will provide your volunteer fire department firefighters a safer environ- ment to work in." Jerry Hurley, council coor- dinator, also wants to remind senior and disabled citizens that the Fire Safe Council offers a "Defensible Space Assistance Program," For more information, call 283- 0829 and leave a message or visit At the May meeting the council will be discussin progress toward current wildfire mitigation projects and implementation of the Community Wildfire Protec- tion Plan. The Plumas County Fire Safe Council invites residents interested in preventing and mitigating impacts from wild- land fires to their homes or communities to become members. The council is a coalition of citizens, busi- nesses, fire departments and representatives of local, state and federal government agen- cies. The mission of the council is "to reduce the loss of natural and manmade re- sources caused by wildfire through Firewise Commu- nity programs and pre-fire activities." For additional information on council activities and defensible space visit plumas Health talk planned "Seniors and Medicine" will be the topic when the Plumas County Commission on Aging meets Thursday, May 17, at the Wildwood Center in Chester. Family Nurse Practitioner Tonya MacDonald will be the speaker, covering health differences as we age. "We all want to know about how medications affect us," said Nancy Lund, chair- woman of the commission, "and why seniors may have problems with sleep and diet, which they did not have earlier." All meetings of the com- mission are open to the public and people interested in subjects pertaining to seniors are welcome to attend and participate in the meet- ing. Meetings are always held in locations that are accessible to the handicapped and those needing assistance should call 283-0891 24 hours before the meeting. Those wishing to join the group for lunch need to make reservations by calling 394-7636 Wednesday, May 16. For more information call 284-7206. State park cleanup set In an effort to open Plumas-Eureka State Park by Memorial Day, the Plumas- Eureka State Park Associa- tion is asking for volunteers to help clean up the park. After 18 months of closure there are wood chips to be spread, trails to be cleaned, lawns to be raked, roads in the campground to be swept and general spring cleanup. The cleanup day is Saturday, May 12. All Volunteers should wear long pants, work shoes, gloves, hats and have water bottles. Leaf and garden rakes, fiat nose shovels and, if possible, wheelbarrows will be needed. Workers plan to start at 8 a.m. and be finished by noon. PESPA hopes the commu- nity will come up to the park and help get a head start on the opening. Organizers know everyone is busy on their own yard this time of year but think this could be a good time to have some community involved fun. RSVP for the cleanup day to Jay Skutt, 836-4135.
