Councilman Ron Nirenberg is happy the City of San Antonio has a wildfire plan.
“As a community that has open space and suburban development in areas that are prone to drought, needs to be prepared for wildfire,” he said.
He said wildfires have threatened the city before.
“And a plan for dealing with that threat is extremely important as our city growns,” he said.
The plan prepares us just in case, he said, and there’s a $10,000 grant headed to the San Antonio Fire Department to help them prepare.
“Every San Antonian knows we are just a few months away from a very dry period,” Nirenberg told KTSA News. “So preparing for fire under those conditions is vital.”
