Montecito Fire District to Honor MarBorg Industries for Support of Hazard Reduction Programs

The company has donated more than $80,000 worth of free roll-off containers

The Montecito Fire Protection District will honor MarBorg Industries on Friday for its contribution in supporting Fire Hazard Reduction programs in Montecito.

MarBorg Industries and the district have been partners in Defensible Space/Survivable Space Fuel Reduction Programs during the past several years.

Neighborhood-driven fuel reduction projects have been accomplished with a focus on improving access roads and reducing the amount of flammable vegetation around structures.

MarBorg has donated more than $80,000 worth of free roll-off containers in support of removing flammable vegetation.

David Borgatello will be presented with a plaque and letter of appreciation from the Montecito Fire Protection District at 9 a.m. Friday at the district’s headquarters, 595 San Ysidro Road.

— Curtis Vincent for the Montecito Fire Protection District.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
