The Eucalyptus Hills Fire Safe Council holds first "Chipping Day"

The Eucalyptus Hills Fire Safe Council hosted their first 'Chipping Day' this past Saturday (5/8). The local Council (in cooperation with the greater San Diego Fire Safe Council and the Lakeside Fire District) hoped for 20 truckloads during their 'kick off' event. The final count of truckloads when volunteers closed the doors was 63, nearly breaking the record (70) for the busiest (4 hour) chipping day event in San Diego County to date. 
Council volunteers and Lakeside firefighters interacted with the residents waiting in line by distributing defensible space literature and really making the most of the opportunity to pass along important fire safety education. Fire Marshal Greg Schreiner was instrumental in coordinating the Fire Safe Council volunteers and other community members in support of this very successful event.
