In lieu of everything going on, we thought it’d be important for all of us to know how to be as fire ready as we can. At the news conference this morning, County of San Diego Deputy Chief, Ron Lane, informed us all that this is only the start of a very long fire season in San Diego County. He suggested we prepare our family and household to be evacuated in 15 minutes (the warning a lot of people have gotten this week). How can we be more fire ready?
Here are some amazing resources, both for making your home and property as fire safe as possible and for handling wildfires threatening your safety.
- Ready for Wildfire by Cal Fire
- Fire Ready Kit from Country Fire Authority
- Ready San Diego
- 211 San Diego
- Ready, Set, Go! from San Diego Fire-Rescue Department
- Wildfires Guide from Ready.gov
Let’s all get prepared as we can. And let’s thank all the amazing firefighters and law enforcement we have here in San Diego.
