    Prevention is the Best Way to Fight Wildfire - Fuel Reduction is Naturally Intelligent

    Last updated 3 years ago

    • Wildfire prevention through fuel reduction

    It's startling to see photos or videos of firefighters on the front line of a wildfire. The hazard of being surrounded by grass, brush, trees and other fuel makes the danger of combating these fires well worth preventative steps to minimize their threat.

    One of the simple steps to prepare for wildfire season is fuel reduction. In these two photos you can see a herd of goats being used to naturally remove a deep layer of spring growth and then the resulting difference. This simple step dramatically reduces the ground-level grass and brush that will soon become bone-dry tinder and a genuine wildfire hazard.

    This is a fire prevention technique that stands the test of time. Hire a herd and watch as the fuel supply is quickly reduced to a small collection of biodegradable pellets. It's proactive, efficient and effective.

    Best of all, it's much better to pay a small price to have goats on your property instead of paying the steep price of having firefighters trying to save your home.

    We have firefighters on our staff and in our families. We've sent them off to fight these fires. Please help us keep them safe - do your part to prevent wildfires.

    Here Comes The Dry Season - Remember To Keep Your Home & Property Safe from Wildfires!

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Our modest version of Winter and slightly damp Spring will yield an abundant fuel supply for the coming fire season. You may not clean out your closets or garage this Spring but make the defense of your property a priority for weekend chores in the weeks ahead.

    Cal Fire offers a great video summary of the steps every rural homeowner should take to prepare for wildfire season. It's short and includes powerful examples of how your proactive steps could save your home this summer.

    Here are some tips for protecting your home and family in the fire season ahead.

    • Remember that your defensible space is a 30 foot "fuel-free" zone around your home. Remove firewood, brush, needles and tall grass from this zone.
    • Make a list of the things you would absolutely want to take with you in the event you need to evacuate your property. Take a picture of the list with your smart phone so you'll keep it handy.
    • Plan your evacuation routes and destinations so you can know where you are going when it's time to leave in a hurry.
    • Keep all combustible materials away from your propane tanks. Remember to shut the tanks off before you evacuate your home. 

    We're dedicated to supporting the communities we serve through ongoing participation in the training of 1st responders and volunteer fire departments. If you have any fire safety questions, we recommend visiting the Cal Fire website. If you have any propane safety questions, please pick up the phone and call us.

    Our amazing team in Dinuba delivers gas to customers from the southern end of the Mother Lode to the farms and ranches of the Central Valley. They have the tremendous responsibility of helping California citrus farmers defend their crops when temperatures drop low enough to damage crops.

    Earlier this year, January's cold weather brought the threat of real peril to the area. This amazing group of people rallied together to serve our customers and prevent a dramatic crop loss in the Central Valley. 

    Teamwork. Enthusiasm. Initiative. Ingenuity. It's really hard to fully describe what they brought to the challenge they faced on those cold days and nights. It's not hard to find the words they deserve to hear.

    Team Dinuba - we salute your tremendous accomplishment. You humble us with your dedication and we are grateful for your service to our customers.

    From your friends and colleagues in Manteca, Antioch, Pioneer, Delhi, Sacramento, Alpine, Hayward, Placerville, Sonora, Walnut Grove and Ramona - thank you!

    Kamps Propane won't be the same in a few days. We gathered in Stockton today to celebrate the career and friendship of Sharon Weiss. Sharon will embark on her new career as a retiree in a week and we'll miss her, soon and often.

    She's been an important part of our growth in the last decade. We know she's got many happy years ahead of her and we wish her all the best in retirement. It's a sad happy moment - it's going to be tough for a while.

Do you like Kamps Propane California?
