Welcome to the Home Page of the Piñon Oaks Folks

Important Firewise Information!

We have received critical Firewise information which you can review here. This article has some great Tips 'n' Tricks about minimizing the impact of any potential fires on your home as well as the Piñon Oaks sub-division.

The second Wildfire Research Fact Sheet in the 2018 five-part series produced by IBHS and NFPA’s Firewise USA program has been released. May's topic is: Under-Eave Construction. The under-eave area of a house is often overlooked when addressing vulnerabilities that can cause damage or loss during a wildfire. This article can be accessed through the NFPA's May Fire Break blog.

The third Wildfire Research Fact Sheet in the 2018 five-part series produced by IBHS and NFPA's Firewise USA program has been released. June's topic is: Skylights. It can be accessed through the NFPA's June Fire Break blog.

The fourth Wildfire Research Fact Sheet in the 2018 five-part series produced by IBHS and NFPA's Firewise USA program has been released. July's topic is: Exterior Sprinkler Systems. It can be accessed through the NFPA's July Fire Break blog.

Firewise Certification

firewise presentationFolks,

After a nearly two-year coordinated effort, Piñon Oaks received its official FIREWISE neighborhood certification. This photo was shot at a recent PAWUIC meeting. I wish that everyone on the Piñon Oaks Board could have been there to be included, but we can take another picture at a future Board meeting perhaps next to one of the posted FIREWISE signs to post on our web site.

Speaking of our FIREWISE signs, we got 4 signs (2 for the North and 2 for the South Side) to put up at the entrances to our neighborhoods. After the PAWUIC meeting, Rich Hall and I drove over to the Prescott City Hall to obtain permission to mount these sighs on existing Prescott city sign supports.

We (myself, Jim Campbell, and Rich Hall) will try now to put together a grant proposal for this year funds to clear perimeter areas of the South Side. We'll review this at our next Board meeting.

Again, my thanks to everyone (especially Yavapai County Supervisor Brown, Past PAWUIC Chair Bob Betts, Chief Steve Lombardo, and AZ DFFN Dude Jake Guadinana) for their support to our neighborhood fire safety effort!

Jim Zimmerman Chair, POF Board
