The Nevada County Fire Safe Council is offering Defensible Space Advisory Training to people in the community. Executive Director Joanne Drummond says the two day training is to teach the mechanics of defensible space. They will also cover new building code standards for homes in the urban wild land interface and access for emergency equipment. Drummond says there are about 70 percent private roads in Nevada County and many people are unfamiliar of what type of vegetation management requirements there are along these roadways. Drummond says it’s critical to have those roads cleared for emergency personnel.
Drummond says the training is being offered over two days November 15th and 16th.
