In the March 15 edition of the Illinois Valley News article “Birds and fire safety discussed over coffee,” by Laura Mancuso, it was stated the Wildfire Fuels Reduction Program was for low-income residents – this was an error. The following is the correct information:
IVFROG offers multiple programs and financial incentives for local residents regardless of income.
Local woodland owners who are eager to decrease their vulnerability to wildfire will find resources to help them create and maintain defensible space around their homes. IVFROG supports ALL neighborhood-wide efforts to become Firewise. Call if interested in more information: 541-415-0603.
The Illinois Valley News regrets this error. Thank you for reading your local newspaper.
