Do you have brush within 50 feet of your house and have a wood roof or combustible siding? If you answered yes to either of these questions your house could become a statistic during the 1980 fire season. Since 1973 the Department of Forestry has had a fire prevention aid program aimed at homeowners who needed guidance in making their homes "fire safe". This program was cut in 1979 and is not funded this year. State law requires a 30 foot clearance, or clearance to the property line of flamable vegetation. This is iust a minimum clearance. In some areas where the slopes are steep and there is a tot of brush and trees below a house it could require over 100 feet tobe safe. Every year California experiences bad burning conditions. The severity of each fire depends a lot on the wind, and a strong wind on any fire in- creases the difficulty to control it. When windy conditions exist there are many times when the first arriving engines are not enough to control the fire and additional engines are needed. It is during this time, when equipment is still coming to the fire, that homes are burned. It is imperative that people living in or near the outlying areas understand the potential exists that if there is a fire in their area which threatens their home there might not be a fire engine available to come protect their home. They should have made their home "fire safe" prior to needing the fire engine. With the 4th of July holidays coming up, one of the most dangerous times of the fire season, we urge homeowners and renters to comply with the following requirements to help make their house "fire safe": Clear flammable vegetation away from the structure for 30 feet, or to the property line if it is closer. This can be done by mowing the grass down (do not do this on a hot afternoon, it is recommended grass mowing be done in the cool of the morning). If water is available it is advisable to keep the mowed area green. Leaves and dead branches should be removed from around trees and shrubs and lower branches removed from trees near the house. Trim dead branches from trees that are over structures. Clean roofs and guflers of debris, leaves, and twigs that have gathered during the past year. The following items are not required by law but are advisable: Have a water hose or hoses that will reach any part of the house and the roof. Have a ladder on hand to reach the roof. Treating your wood roof with a commercial fire retardant can help, but the process has to be renewed on a scheduled basis. If you rely on electricity for water you should have an alternate source for water supply. Do not leave combustible curtaims or drapes on large windows (ha would be exposed to a fire running up a hill. If you have questions about making your home "fire safe" prior to the arrival of a fire, we urge you to contact your local fire agency or the California Department of Forestry at 546-1544.

You live in Cloverdale and the foot doctor is in Santa ROSa,... On your way back to Cloverdale'from your job in San Francisco, your old car finally bites the big one .... Have you ever found yourself in any of these sRuations? Or are you among the growing numberof Sonoma County residents who is appalled at the rising cost of gasoline? Are you looking for alternatives? You may be surprised to find that there are more public transportation ser- vices available in Sonoma County than ever before. New routes and services have been added to increase alternatives to the use of the private automobile. It is thanks to the hard work of local governments and the year and a half old. Paratransit Coordinating Council (PCC) that these services have been added, and are constantly being examined for improvement and expansion. The PCC is appointed to advise local government on public transportation systems within the county, and is dedicated to the con- cept that public involvement and informed citizens are an essential part of action to improve our county transit system. in April of this year, a five year Public Transportation Plan for Sonoma County through 1985 was approved by the cities and the Board of Supervisors. This plan designates specific im- provements to be made to the system and identifies target dates and funding sources for these improvements. The plan's goals include development of a county-wide coordinated public transit system, and attention to the needs of the elderly and handicapped. All services are designed to hook up with each other to provide easy transfer and avoid duplication. The largest gap identified by the five year plan has been found to be public tran- sportation for the county commuter, a problem that has received many com- ments and complaints since the onset of the energy crisis. Some suggestions for im- proving this situation have included revising inter-city bus routes and schedules to service the work trip, .ex- panding county-wide carpooi- vanpool programs, and ex- tending public transportation to communities where there is none. Some people may not be aware that there are other forms of public tran- sportation besides the fixed- route bus. There are also "Dial-a-Ride" fleets which Obituary II I Maude Agnes Yeakey Services for Maude Agnes Yeakey, 84, were held at I p.m. Tuesday at Redding Memorial Park Cemetery.
