We rely on volunteer neighborhood leaders supported by Fire Adapted Communities program staff and fire district personnel to help communities prepare for wildfire. Neighborhood leaders provide a conduit for information and educational materials to their neighbors. Beyond that, leader commitment and involvement is customizable, and FAC program staff can help leaders organize wildfire preparation activities for neighborhoods such as educational workshops, wildfire preparation block parties, and community work days. All levels of involvement are welcome. Learn more about neighborhood leader involvement and resources available to leaders by clicking on the following links and contacting the Fire Adapted Communities Coordinator at [email protected] for more information.
Emergency notification systems are used by county emergency managers to send a prepared message via text, email or telephone to people in the affected area. However, you may not receive the message if the electricity fails, if you are not at home when an emergency occurs, or if you have not registered with your county’s emergency notification system. Most systems will allow you to enter multiple forms of contact information, such as unlisted home number, cell phone, work phone and email address. To register, follow the links below for your County:
