May is wildfire prevention month, and the city of Gig Harbor is doing what it can to prepare for wildfire season. To make sure your home or neighborhood is prepared for the coming fire season, the Pierce Conservation District, East Pierce Fire & Rescue, Orting Valley Fire, Greenwater Fire and Washington State Department of Natural Resources have teamed up for a Virtual Firewise Seminar that will take place May 25 at 6 p.m. for communities, home owners associations and property owners. “We are supporting and encouraging the virtual seminar, and the programming will be geared more towards the homeowner, providing information on how people can mitigate wildfire risks in our communities and in our neighborhoods,” said Eric Waters, division chief at Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One.
