PostSubject: A Bisbee Fire Department to be Proud Of   Fri Mar 21, 2008 7:05 am

A round of applause Applause and thanks to our Fire Department and all of the volunteer firefighters who successfully fought the Moon Canyon fire and saved all of the homes. We could hear them working into the night. It is alleged that the fire started from a illegal burn at a residence at the end of Moon Canyon.

PostSubject: Problems can be catastrophic   Fri Mar 21, 2008 5:29 pm

We have to take a lot more precautions on both keeping our property clear of brush and overgrowth AND making sure that the public land is also cleared of growth. Every time anyone suggests cutting down some of the brush somebody starts screaming about it being sanctuary for wildlife. Well that is true but you bet that the first time one of these wildfires hits someone's home or heaven forbid makes it into the town itself, we're going to be the ones that need a sanctuary.

PostSubject: Toxic fire   Sat Mar 22, 2008 8:54 am

Here we go again. Conspiracy The toxic offender is already trying to spin this to trash somebody (check out Topix). He apparently dismisses the fact that fires are dangerous and do get out of control with or without permits. What a truly civic minded individual could do is use this ongoing risk in a positive way; to educate and motivate people to clear brush, to publicize the need for a fire break between the city and the open areas, and to encourage public support for a united campaign to protect Bisbee from wildfires that could take lives or property. But he'd rather use it as an opportunity to criticize the city or someone in the administration. How typical! Moan

PostSubject: Ignore him.   Sat Mar 22, 2008 9:03 am

The toxic offender has been neutralized (too bad we can't say the same about his yard) just ignore him. Everyone knows he is desperate for attention. Remember the credo... Anti trolling

PostSubject: Info on Firewise   Sat Mar 22, 2008 3:35 pm

After The Fire Passes



  • Check inside the attic for hidden burning embers.
  • Check the roof immediately, extinguishing all sparks and
    embers. If you must climb onto the roof, use caution, especially if it
    is wet.
  • Check your yard for burning woodpiles, trees, fence posts or other materials.
  • Keep the doors and windows closed.
  • Continue rechecking your home and yard for burning embers for at least 12 hours.

There's also the truly terrifying thought of the toxicity of the smoke resulting from a back yard fire fueled by chickens and e-waste....

I wonder how many of us are looking a little differently at the clean up ordinance and not seeing it as simply gentrification?

The city council passed the Cleanup Ordinances (2) in October 2006.
That's 2006.

If the city council had not caved in to MacKinnon's vendetta, the referendum
could have been on the March ballot with the charter amendments and the
cleanup ordinances would now be LAW.

If the ordinances are so important then why does the city keep them in Limbo?

You can't give Jeff Harris ALL the credit.

Unless you can describe this so-called vendetta, and back it up with evidence, instead of assuming it's existence is a given fact that everyone accepts, I shall give this post no credibility (and no more of my time.) Rolling Eyes
