Safest Homes on the Hill 2011

In April, MCFSC, in partnership with Idyllwild Fire, CAL FIRE/Riverside County, and the U.S. Forest Service, kicked off a contest to identify the most fire safe homes on the hill. Property owners were encouraged to enter their homes in this contest to be judged on defensible space and ember resistance. Applications were received from the Pine Cove and Idyllwild areas, and one winner was selected from each community.

Congratulations to winners Ron Kelly from Idyllwild, and Ian and Jean Tober from Pine Cove, seen below accepting their awards from Edwina Scott, MCFSC Executive Director, Mike Esnard, Don Patterson, and Idyllwild and Pine Cove firefighters.

Our sincere thanks to event sponsors, Pine Cove Water District, Tom and Joan McCullough, and The Town Crier.
