10 FIREWISE TIPS FOR LAKE HOME PROTECTION
Seasonal fires destroy many woodland homes each year. Vacation homes require special precautions:
1. RAKE LEAVES and needles within 30 feet of your home and buildings.
2. MOVE FIREWOOD 30 feet away from any buildings.
3. PRUNE trees so lowest branches are 6 feet from the ground.
4. CLEAN GUTTERS and other places where debris can gather, (Embers from a fire will gather there, too.)
5. MOW tall grass near buildings but NOT in buffer zones.
6. WORK with your neighbors to prevent control fire risk.
7. RETAIN MOISTURE by maintaining a 35 foot buffer zone near the lake.
8. KEEP A LONG GARDEN HOSE attached.
9. FOLLOW DRIVEWAY CODES to assure fire trucks can easily maneuver around your property.
10. KEEP MATCHES & FIREWORKS far from children. Remember that fireworks are ILLEGAL!

For more information on how to be a FIREWISE property, contact the The Town of Jackson Volunteer Firefighters to have a  survey of your property done. Call 715-866-8404 and leave a message that you would like to have this survey done. There is NO CHARGE for this service.

DID YOU KNOW...
It is against the law to ride or sit on the gunwales, tops of seat backs or sides or decking over the bow while underway. This means on a pontoon everyone must be INSIDE the rails on not on the outside while the pontoon is moving.

You cannot operate any watercraft in a circular manner within 200 feet of another boat or person.
You cannot operate a boat within 100 feet of the shoreline, any dock, raft, etc at a greater than "slow, no wake" speed.
PWC's must operate at "slow-no wake" speed within 200 feet of the shoreline or any other water craft.
PWC's cannot operate before sunrise or after sunset.
These are only a few of the rules and please be aware that the DNR and the Sheriff's Boat Patrol will visit our lake at regular intervals. In fact, today-May 29, 2017 the Game Warden was on the lake checking people.
