An Association Membership is for a group of people along a private road, who want to get together and clear the road for safer evacuation and then have their piles chipped shortly after completing the work. This membership gives your association a chipping consultant who will cover topics such as county fire road standards, defensible space along the road, and how to properly place your chipping piles. Association members will receive scheduled service to chip piles after their designated work day (weather, equipment & schedule permitting) within the next week. Association members are also eligible to borrow available safety signs, cones, vests & safety supplies from the FSCNC to use while clearing the defensible space along the roadway. Chipping service is suggested at $75 per hour and is separate from the membership program.
