Fire Season

From Paul Valdez–We have received our share of moisture from all the snow that fell on Manor Lands this past Winter. As a result, our foliage is as green as can be and for right now the fire danger is very low. These conditions will soon change as the temperature goes up and humidity goes down. The green brush and grasses will turn brown creating a dangerous fire condition that we all need to heed when we consider having a campfire.
I will not quote the Fire Regulation from our rules and regulations but I would like everyone to please review the requirements and safety recommendations in this regulation. It is available on the Blog for your reference under Rules and Regulations, paragraph E.
As a minimum, it is important to ensure that you do not have any combustible materials within 15 feet of a fire pit such as dry grass, tree limbs hanging over the fire etc. It is very clearly defined in the Fire Regulation as to what constitutes an approved fire pit design. Please heed the design requirements listed in regulation E, in order to make your fire pit as safe as possible. One important portion of the fire regulation is the penalties enforced for escaped or unattended campfires or fire pits. You can be subject to prosecution & suppression cost from County, State & MLPOA fines & penalty assessments. for not having an approved pit Our properties are a valuable part of our lives and require the cooperation of all members to keep Manor Lands safe and fire free. Please do your part to make your fire pit safe. One last thing, there will be a committee that will be inspecting fire pits this year. I ask that you cooperate and understand how important it is to all of us that everyone using their fire pit, ensure that it is an approved design and always make sure your fire is cold when it is left unattended..
