The Robles Firewise Group is hosting a free defensible space “Boot Camp” this Saturday, June 12th featuring presentations by Robles Firewise, Ember Defense, and Vulcan Vents. The event is scheduled from 10:30am to 4:00 pm at the Carmel Valley Village Fire House, 26 Via Contenta. Tickets are free with a suggested $15.00 donation to cover the costs of the event. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The event will help to educate residents on how to harden and protect their homes to increase their chances of their homes surviving a wildfire. It’s important for our community to be proactive and work in conjunction with state and county agencies to ensure the safety of our neighborhoods.

The event will highlight a new defensible zone -- the Immediate Zone, otherwise known as the Ember-Resistant Zone or the Zero Zone -- which is from 0-5 feet from a house or structure. Two companies that specialize in home hardening will present tips and strategies that homeowners can immediately utilize to harden their homes, and a burn trailer will demonstrate the vulnerability of common attic/soffit/foundation vents.

There will be three Platoon Times:
• 10:30 am to 12:00pm
• 12:30 pm to 2:00pm
• 2:30pm to 4:00pm

Other agencies and organizations will be on site with educational information as well.

The event will include information from vendors, community businesses and organizations. There will also be a prize drawing during each of the three sessions (or platoons) scheduled that day. All products and services have been donated by local businesses. Proceeds will go to three local local non-profits organizations committed to addressing the growing wildfire threat:
Cachagua Volunteer Fire Department
Monterey County Regional Fire District’s Benevolence Fund
Robles Firewise Group

Due to COVID restrictions, Attendees must pre-register. If tickets are still available, attendees may register on-site as well.
