FireSafe Council Receives Another Grant!

Meadows FireSafe Council has been awarded another grant! AllState Insurance selected three FireSafe Councils and awarded each $5,000. The money is to be used for non-brush clearance activities. Once we get final approval of our application, our FireSafe Council is considering using the funds for setting up our own non-profit, funding the educational materials we’ve provided and helping defray costs of the anticipated public events.

Speaking of which, the check from Allstate Insurance will be presented on Friday, July 14th in Sierra Madre. Then, on Saturday, July 15th from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., we’ll participate in a community outreach event with Allstate, L.A. County Fire Department, the Forest Service and various other fire prevention organizations. The event will take place at Parking Lot I at the Rose Bowl, just outside KidSpace. Volunteers are needed to man the booth. Please call Margaret Bridwell at 626-798-0489 to help support the council.
