Southern CA Wildfires Remind Us To Be Prepared
With the Lilac wildfire burning in San Diego County and wildfires burning to the north of the region, it’s a good time to look around your home and assess your situation. We're in our dangerous fire season, and that one could flare up any moment, especially with more forecasted Santa Ana winds heading to San Diego County. Now’s the time to take stock of your emergency supplies and review your family emergency plan. Would you be ready to react if you got notice of a fast-moving fire threatening homes in your community?
Register all of your family's cell phones with AlertSanDiego so that you will all be notified of an emergency affecting your neighborhood. This is especially important if you no longer have a landline at your home. You can also download the SDEmergency App. ReadySanDiego.org is a great resource for a wide variety of preparedness tips.
