The Fire Safety Committee wishes to make Pinebrook residents aware of a number of upcoming events and activities.
- A Walk in Pinebrook with one of our Resident Wildland Firefighters – Brad Washa will lead a 90 minute educational hike along the Spring Creek Trail on Saturday, October 29th to share information about the Pinebrook Fire Safety Committee’s professional forestry efforts over the past three years, to talk about the work done already and what’s planned for later in 2022 and early 2023, and to answer your questions. Please plan to meet at the Ecker Hill Park (beneath the old ski jump) at 10am, and please dress for the cool fall morning weather. Here’s some more info explaining the Committee’s efforts: https://pinebrookmasterassn.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2208/2022/10/What-flagging-and-paint-about-Poster-13-Oct-22.pdf
