To that end, a community open house will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Moab Valley Fire Department, 25 South 100 East.
Invitations were mailed out Sept. 19 under the heading: Fire Danger is Real! Reducing fuel hazards along Mill and Pack creeks is critical to preventing another wildfire in residential areas.
Sponsored by the MVFD, the City of Moab, Grand County, Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands and Rim to Rim Restoration, the open house is designed to teach property owners and other residents what their responsibilities are, how people can help in their own neighborhoods, and provide information on available resources.
The BEACON Afterschool Program will provide activities for children.
