Fire Preparedness

Temperatures are up, humidity is down, and several parts of the state are already in flames. Here is a message from First District County Supervisor, Greg Fox

Prepare for Wildfires

 With temperatures soaring this week and conditions remaining very dry, firefighters throughout the region are on high alert and are preparing for the possibility of wildfires. All San Diego County residents should be preparing as well. One simple step is to register your cell phone with the county’s mass notification system so you can receive evacuation notices and critical information.

 The system’s database already has your land line number. But we need your cell phone number. It takes only a couple of minutes at the most. It’s free, and it’s easy. Residents just need to go to and click on the AlertSanDiegologo. It is a very easy step to ensure your family is contacted in times of a crisis, even if your land line phones are not working.

 With September being National Preparedness Month, there is no better way to prepare you and your loved ones for an emergency than by signing up with AlertSanDiego. I hope you will take the time to do so. In an emergency, it could mean the difference between life and death.
