Fire Safety Grants Available 

Visit bendruralfire.com to find out what the DRFPD No.2 can do for your rural neighborhood

If last fire season caused rural residents of Bend any anxiety, the Deschutes Rural Fire Protection District No. 2 is trying to help.
Residents in DRFPD 2 can apply for grants aimed at improving the fire safety of neighborhoods and homes. Although the grant cycle is ongoing, the fire department said now is a good time for residents to consider how they can mitigate fuels and make their properties less vulnerable to fire.
The grants are available at bendruralfire.com. Click on the Public Info & Programs tab, then Grant Application. Download the PDF file to fill out. Directions for where to mail the grant are on the form.
Examples of what the grants can be used for are: Disposal and hauling fees and dumpsters; volunteer expenses such as food and drinks, transportation and food; fuels modification and mailing or advertising expenses to "get the word out."
District 2 consists of approximately 220 square miles of suburban and forested land surrounding Bend, and represents approximately 20,000 residents.
