RSG! Program Member Spotlight: Carson City Fire Department
Carson City Fire Department established a mitigation trailer program that places trailers in communities for residents to load their removed vegetation, then the department hauls the trailers to the local landfill. In 2019 alone (as of October 31, Oct 2019), this program has removed 270 tons of hazardous vegetation with over 450 residences participating.
Since the inception of the program, over 4000 tons of hazardous vegetation has been removed from at-risk WUI communities. This is equivalent to eight, fully loaded 747 airliners.
