Wildfire Preparedness

Jul 08 2020
Wildfire Preparedness

The height of wildfire season begins in mid-summer and runs through early autumn. During the weeks preceding this season, it is important for residents to educate themselves on how to best protect themselves, their homes, and their communities from the threat of wildfire. 

Depending on fire intensity, size and wind speed, embers can be carried more than a mile ahead of the fire. Consequently, homes located blocks away from the flame front are vulnerable to ignition and complete destruction. It's important to create a wildfire action plan now, long before a wildfire threatens your home. For more information on how to prepare for wildfire season, click here

This early season virus activity in the region is concerning when coupled with high mosquito abundance. It is essential for all residents in Orange County to be active in eliminating mosquito breeding in and around their properties to help reduce the number of adult mosquitoes. 

Remember, mosquito control is a shared responsibility. Click here to learn how you can take charge of your yard.
