A message from our Mosquito Fire Safe Council -

 Hi Fellow Mosquito residents! The Mosquito Fire Safe Council has just received notification from our mother organization, the EDCFSC, that the county fire safe council’s chipping program has used up all its funding and is no longer available until such time as they can get more grant money.


The good news is that the Mosquito Fire Safe Council’s chipping program, sponsored and exclusively funded by Swansboro Country Property Owners Association, is still going strong! An informal running tally shows that around one hundred Mosquito residents have taken advantage of this valuable service and have contributed to the in-kind commitment portion of the TMG-123448 MFSC grant.
Any resident within the Mosquito Fire Protection District is eligible and can find a chipping request form on the MFSC website: http://www.mosquitofsc.org


Thanks again all you who have been “doing your part” in working on your own defensible space, recording your efforts, and sending in your tracking sheets! If you get a chance, check out the grant funded work being done on Rock Creek Road and now it can also be seen along Mosquito Road. You won’t need someone to show you where, it is clearly evident as you drive through!


Stay safe and healthy!
Respectfully reported,
Jerry Pullin MFSC Grant Coordinator

 

Fire Fuels Reduction, managed by the RCD, for Mosquito's benefit

If you wish to see the physical results of the fire fuels reduction, provided by the efforts of SCPOA's matching funds, the Mosquito Fire Safe Council, and our own members contributing in-kind work logs, then take a drive on Rock Creek Road west of the Cut Off, or into Gravel Road.  The two masticators  have been doing their work to eliminate ladder fuels.  Some areas are not easily seen in some areas so be sure to view both sides of Rock Creek Road and to the west of Gravel Road.  Photos would have been posted but by not doing so will allow you some time out for exercise during the country's time out.  Remember to practice social distancing.

In late 2018 CalTrans presented the association with a safety report regarding the runway. Copies of the CalTrans report, SCPOA's letter to residents, and response to CalTrans can be found by clicking HERE.  Last report from the airport committee is that nine residents, with property at or near the runway, have yet to respond and it is now 2020.  Also, to ensure SCPOA's resident pilots, that use an aircraft on SCPOA's common area airport, are now, by resolution,  required to provide  a copy of their aircraft liability insurance  certificate to SCPOA's management company.  As the common area airport belongs to ALL SCPOA members the board wanted to ensure that aircraft insurance is in effect.  Failure to provide it may affect your financial stability as a member if a 'deep pockets' lawsuit ever occurs.

SCPOA + MosquitoFSC Chipper Program

SCPOA's commitment to helping Swansboro become a fire safe community is beginning now.  As a Swansboro resident SCPOA and the Mosquito Fire Safe Council are offering you a 'no cost to you' chipping program.   The request form can be downloaded by clicking the file link below.  Please read the entire form, which can be filled out online, and submit it to the email address located at the bottom of the form.  Important note:  Chipping will be done by SCPOA's maintenance workers.  They will have final determination as to what they will or will not chip.  They will also chip back onto your property so ensure a clear area is available.  As a reminder your time spent to prepare a defensible space,  as well as the SCPOA maintenance team's time,  is an 'in kind' participation and counts towards the grant received from the US Forest Service.  Please download your tracking sheet by clicking below.  Additional program information can be found HERE.
