Firewise in Virginia
On September 20, Michele Steinberg, Firewise Communities program manager, and Heidi Wagner, Firewise Northeast advisor, traveled to Virginia to meet with the Virginia Department of Forestry and community leaders in Wintergreen and Chinquapin to discuss the work being done to lessen the communities’ risk of brush, grass and forest fires. During their visit, Michele was interviewed by NBC affiliate WVIR 29 in Charlottesville regarding mitigation efforts directed toward Wintergreen Mountain, an area filled with downed trees and debris left as a result of a 2003 storm.

Watch the interview and to learn more about Wintergreen’s efforts.
