It was a perfect weekend for yard work as evident by the amount of debris brought in during the Sedona Fire District and U.S. Forest Service’s 15th annual cleanup day.
The three-day event, Friday through Sunday, May 19 through 21, was held at Station 4 in Uptown and is designed to encourage people to prepare their homes and yards for wildfire season.
“We did a lot of cleaning around our house last week so this is perfect timing,” said Todd Springer, of the Village of Oak Creek. “I grew up in Southern California so I’m well aware of what wildfires can do and how quickly they spread. Even if your property is not adjacent to the forest land, you still need to be prepared. Fire doesn’t discriminate as to where it burns.”
