Be prepared! Learn how to set up a personal family disaster plan and how to reduce your risk of wildfire in this program from the San Diego Fire Department; co-sponsored by the SDFD, UCCA, and the University Community Library. Saturday, August 24 @ 10:30 AM, at the University Community Library, 4155 Governor Drive.

No one knows when or where the next major wildfire will occur in our region. But it is a question of when — not if — it will happen. That’s why San Diego Fire-Rescue has partnered with the International Association of Fire Chiefs to create the Ready, Set, Go! Wildfire and Disaster Preparedness Fire Action Guide.

  • Ready — Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildland fire, so your home is ready in case of a fire. Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home. Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures. Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe place. Plan escape routes and make sure all those residing within the home know the plan of action.
  • Set — Pack your emergency items. Stay aware of the latest news and information on the fire from local media, your local fire department and public safety.
  • Go –– Follow your personal wildland fire action plan. Doing so will not only support your safety, but will allow firefighters to best maneuver resources to combat the fire.

Ready, Set, Go; Wildfire and Disaster Preparedness – Courtesy of the San Diego Fire Rescue Department, learn how to prepare to reduce your risk; includes tips on setting up a personal family disaster plan. Co-sponsored by the SDFD, UCCA, and the University Community Library. Saturday, August 24 @ 10:30 a.m.
