Zapata neighbors gathered on May 7 to participate in the annual Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, as a Firewise Community event.
Slash and debris clean up was completed on California Circle with the help of volunteers John and Tyra Barnes, Jan Burt, Joe Funk, Tony Oswald, Nancy Starling, Wayne Ross, and Jack Zeman. Volunteers gave their time and the use of their vehicles to clear slash and debris from the roadside area that had been needing cleanup for some time.
The May 7 event fulfills the ZHA requirement to have an annual Firewise Community event. The ZHA applied for and received $500 of grant monies to apply to the event.
