Georgia Forestry Commission working to spread fire prevention information
By WRCB Staff
A special team from the Georgia Forestry Commission is sharing important fire prevention information with the local community.
As thousands of acres burn across Georgia, GFC officials are making personal connections in an effort to keep people and properties safe.
"We can come to your special event, your meetings, clubs, festivals, wherever locals are gathering," said Mark Wiles, Team Leader. "We want you to know about strategies that can be used to prepare for possible evacuation and making your home more resistant to fire. These are real life tools that can help you get ready if you are in the path of a wildfire," Wiles said.
"We're here in Rome until Sunday, November 13," said Wiles, and we want to share as much information with as many people as possible. These wildfires are dangerous and we want to help everyone stay safe."
The team will relocate to Helen, GA from November 13-19.
