  • Wildfire safety preparedness

    As of July 19, 2020, California wildfires had burned close to 38,000 acres this year, as reported by the California Department of Forestry and Fire (CAL FIRE), compared to the 22,000 acres at the same time last year. Those numbers are rapidly increasing as the summer conditions continue to put our state into one in need of disaster relief. Due to these alarming statistics, and the increase in wildfire danger across the state in the past few years, CAL FIRE has launched the “Ready, Set, Go!” campaign to help Californians learn what they can do to better prepare themselves, their families and their homes against fires.
