In San Diego we are familiar with Santa Ana conditions and a lengthy fire season from May through October. The communities of Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Rancho Santa Fe, Ramona, and Escondido still have not completely recovered from last year’s Witch Fire. Are you more educated now than you were a year ago about fire and fire readiness?
Here are some useful links:
1. Cal Fire (California Dept. of Forestry and Fire Prevention) has information about fire prevention and current California fires and trouble spots.
2. Firewise has interesting interactive quizzes you can take to see if your home is protected from a fire and test how firewise you are.
3. California Fire Weather is a site that shows information on a daily basis about red flag areas and fire weather watches in California.
