..." Dick Standaert lives in the Cedar Heights subdivision and helped to start their wildfire mitigation program. "Essentially we were eliminating the fuel from houses. We did that for over 10 years up to this particular day," Standaert said."

The time for us in Topanga to begin reducing fuel around our homes is now, before the Santa Ana winds arrive later this year. The vegetation is especially dry in our area, as well as Colorado.
