The Bisbee City Council moved forward to make Old Bisbee safer from wildland fires by approving a grant application for $66,000 submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Mayor David Smith and Council members Anna Cline, Joan Hansen, Bill Higgins, Joni Giacomino and Gabe Lindstrom gave unanimous support for the grant and the group Old Bisbee FireWise (OBF), during the meeting Tuesday. OBF, a volunteer organization formed to reduce the risk of wildland fires and protect property, seeks a fire prevention and safety grant from FEMA to begin work on an 11-mile-long firebreak around Old Bisbee, said Danielle Bouchever, one of the 100 members of OBF.
