ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Fire Department wants you to make homes fire safe for summer.
While fire crews are out patrolling the Bosque, they’re also educating homeowners.
Firefighters are handing out pamphlets to people using the Bosque. They explain what can be done to keep homes safe.
“So even though their home isn’t in the Bosque with all the fuel loading and stuff Bosque fires can throw embers up to a mile in distance so we ask homeowners to do their part and clean up around their homes, clean their gutters, close their windows when they’re not home, have an evacuation plan in place,” said AFD Wild Land Division Coordinator Brian Fox.
Firefighters are patrolling the Bosque daily looking for fires.
