The Fire Safe Council of Nevada County has received two grants from Pacific Gas and Electric company. One will help low income seniors and the disabled to clear defensible space on their property under their SNAP program, and the other grant will augment the popular chipping program that is open to all residents of Nevada County. *
Council Executive Director Joanne Drummond says the chipping grant is for $12,500. The second grant for the SNAP program is for $37, 500 and will allow the Fire Safe Council to nearly double the number served.*
