‘Under control’: Hidden Dunes a ‘Firewise’ neighborhood after mitigating risk of blaze

Published: Monday, October 8, 2012 at 10:21 AM.

“Any community can do it, they don’t have to be perfect,” said Goddin, adding that even Hidden Dunes could improve with simple measures such as replacing pine straw near the homes’ foundations, as well as installing a finer grade grate under homes.

But for now, it’s just time to enjoy the minimal risk of wildfire within the Hidden Dunes gates.

A celebration will begin at 10 a.m. with the presentation of a Firewise certification plaque at the neighborhood’s community center, followed by a tour of the Hidden Dunes property.
