​Applications for interested parade entrants are still available and must be submitted by Monday, June 26. The final deadline for applications is 3 p.m. June 29, but will be subject to a $25 late fee.

​Following the end of the parade, the city will provide a “wet zone” at no charge until 1:30 p.m. at Frontier Fields, 600 N. 9th Place. All ages who want to frolic among the sprinklers, cool off with a good soak from Timber Mesa Fire and Medical District’s fire truck or enjoy exciting water activities are invited to come and have fun.

​At 3 p.m., head over to the Show Low football stadium complex, 500 W. Old Linden Road, for the popular FreedomFest festivities — with free admission — planned to last well into the evening. Relish tasty fare, including wood-fired pizza, Indian tacos, funnel cakes, kettle corn, Mexican food, pretzels, cotton candy, shaved ice, hand-crafted soda and other delectable treats.

Ready, Set, Go! designed to help us prepare for wild fires

The White Mountains is known for being an outdoor paradise, with breathtaking scenery, spectacular wildlife, clean air and picture-postcard vistas.  Despite our beautiful surroundings, wild fires are an inevitable act of nature given the area’s topography, tree densities and high-desert weather conditions.  Wildfires are indiscriminate, burning what ever lies within their path.  Consequently, it is important for those of us who live here to take whatever steps we can to reduce re danger and to protect ourselves in the event of an emergency.

Timber Mesa Fire and Medical District has taken the lead, continuing a program launched in 2012 called Ready,Set, Go! (RSG).  Ready, Set, Go! is designed to educate us on how to live in the wildland-urban interface and protect our homes and families.  The “ready” concept teaches us to prepare our homes and properties well in advance of a wildland fire.  Thee “set” concept elevates a family’s situational awareness—when re weather occurs or when wildland fires are burning—to monitor the enviroment and to be ready to evacuate.  The "go" concept alerts us to implement a family disaster plan immdediately, by leaving well before the fire arrives.

One facet of the RSG program is a property assessment.  District personnel go door-to-door visiting homeowners, answering questions and conducting an assessment
of the property to determine fire danger.  Another program component includes valuable information to assist individuals and families with emergency planning, which includes tips on creating an emergency kit (with essentials such as non-perishable food, water, medicine, clothing, hygiene items, etc.) and a step-by-step evacuation plan (should one ever be needed).  In addition, District staff make presentations to homeowners’ associations, neighborhood groups, community organizations and government entities, offering the same helpful advice and tools.

As we have learned from past experience, wild res are potentially an extremely serious threat in the White Mountains.  It is everyone’s responsibility to protect one’s homes and families by making the necessary preparations. In the long run, it is less expensive to prevent wildfires than it is to deal with wild res and the devastation that follows them.

For more information or to schedule a community presentation, call Community Risk Manager Kirk Webb at 368-6112.
