Fire season is upon California. It will be present here in the north state in a large way before we know it. An abundance of grass with the spring weather we are exiting will set the stage for easily ignitable fuels and rapid fire growth as hot and dry weather of summer set in.
Last week’s focus was on evacuating ourselves, family and neighbors. But many of us also have pets and animals that we consider family members. They depend on us for their safety and well-being. This would include making appropriate preparations for them in the event of an emergency. Our friends at the Rescue Ranch have developed some great guidelines for preparing to evacuate our pets. This will also provide peace of mind during an emergency knowing that our pets are ready to be safely evacuated.
Please get yourself and your family ready for an emergency. Have a fire safe week.
