Given the deep concerns we all have with regard to wildfires, I think it’s wise to get this document into circulation through all available means. Those of us in San Diego and throughout California need to pay attention to the advice of our fire safety professionals on the front lines.
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! Wildland Fire Action Guide.
We hope you will read the guide, and follow its advice.
- 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.
