Protect your home from wildfires

Protect your home from wildfires

Despite the challenges of quarantines and social distancing, safety advocates are finding innovative ways to prepare their communities for wildfire. This year’s wildfire preparation season coincided with the nation’s all-consuming COVID-19 response.  Most states west of the Rockies recognize May as Wildfire Awareness Month, when wildfire safety advocates typically preach neighborly activities to reduce wildfire risks in communities. Remember the awesome open houses at our Fire Station 37!

Our message here is to emphasize that there are in fact simple steps you can take to protect your homes from wildfires. It’s the perfect time for home maintenance activities that target roofs, gutters, decks, fences and cleaning up anything combustible around the house, the kind of things that have been proven to be most effective in reducing home wildfire losses. And don’t forget your palm trees. Those dead fronds make your palm tree a torch. Get rid of them.

Recent brush fires in our district over recent weeks serve as a strong reminder that we must always remain vigilant against the threat of wildfire. For tips on how to prepare and protect your home and family, download the Wildland Fire Action Guide from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

As the Scripps Ranch Fire Safe Council, we are also working on ways to assist you in these areas. In the meantime, don’t forget our golf tournament fundraiser is scheduled for Oct. 24. For more information email, visit or call (858) 201-3711.
