Wildfire.....Are You Prepared?


with Chief Mike Bender

Feb 8, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week
Every year across our nation, come homes survive wildfires while many others do not. Those that survive almost always do so because their owners had prepared for the eventuality of fire. Brush, grass, and forest fires don't have to be disasters. This program will demonstrate and encourage local solutions for wildfire safety by involving homeowners in taking individual responsibility for preparing their homes from the risk of wildfire.

As fire chief for the Town of Mt. Desert, Chief Bender has over 30 years experience in the fire service and has been an MDI resident since 1973. He holds certification as fire instructor and wild-land firefighter, and recently completed a National Fire Protection Association course in "Assessing Structure Ignition Potential from Wildfire."
