Charlie Plassmann a Sierra West community leader from Driftwood just south of Austin, Texas sent this article from the local Wimberley View newspaper.  The Sierra West Subdivision has been a recognized Firewise Community/USA® site since 2011 and we at the National Fire Protection Association are excited by their continued commitment to the Firewise program, especially when one considers that Texas was one of the hardest hit during last year’s fire season where 2,900 homes were burned and more than 4 million acres burned.  According to national wildland fire experts this year is going to be a very busy and challenging fire season.
