Are You Prepared for Wildfire?


Free Community Wildfire Preparedness Workshops. Come and learn what steps you can take to prepare your home and family for wildfire and what part you can play in helping your community become more adapted to a wildfire environment. You are invited to meet with fire service representatives and local community organizations and agencies to discuss how we can all work together to be ready for wildfire. Your participation will also help update our local Wildfire Protection Plan. We want to incorporate your ideas and concerns into the updated plan.
