Fire Control and Fuel Source Reduction in the Punkhorn

 fire corps lunch

Many thanks to Barnstable County’s AmeriCorps members for their hard work in Brewster’s Punkhorn Parklands.  The Corps worked diligently at implementing the Wildland Fire Protection & Preparedness Plan as part of Barnstable County’s Fire Grant Program.  Members from the General Corps as well as the FireCorps helped to reduce fuel sources by cutting and removing brush and fallen trees along the major roads and intersections as a means to create safety zones. The FireCorps also worked in Mother’s Bog removing scrub pines.
