2020 Jester "30 feet for Fire Safety"
The Firewise home evaluation is performed by trained Firewise members to evaluate the OUTSIDE of your house/property and make recommendations for you to establish an area of defense against fire, preferably 30'. It only takes one hour. The evaluators will make the recommendations , but it is up to the homeowner to make their home safe by turning those recommendations into actions.
The Jester neighborhood of over 900 homes is located just a dozen miles from downtown Austin, the State Capitol, the University of Texas and three of Texas' most popular recreational lakes. Jester is surrounded on three sides by the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve near the junction of RM 2222 and Loop 360 in the beautiful Texas hill country.
Jester Homeowners Association, Inc. (JHA) is a non-profit organization run by a board of directors elected by the members. JHA maintains the entryways, organizes and supports neighborhood social events, and enforces deed restrictions. The Jester Warbler newsletter is sponsored by JHA. The JHA board members represent the neighborhood with the City of Austin and Travis County in connection with matters affecting the neighborhood.
