Spring is the traditional time for sprucing up landscaping around our buildings and this spring will be the first one with a new mulch fire safety regulation in effect. The regulation was developed in response to several significant fires in the Commonwealth involving mulch-wood products. State Fire Marshal Stephen D. Coan and Chief Reardon want to alert landscaping companies, nurseries, building owners and managers about the proper placement and storage of mulch in order to prevent fires.
