Another Successful Evacuation Seminar
 
A senario-based evacuation seminar was held on April 21, 2018 at the Castle Creek Country Club. More than 40 local residents attended. The presentation was based on factual predicted wildfire behavior for the area and challenged the residents to think about the various aspects of evacuation and how they might react at various points in the scenario timeline. Deer Springs Fire Chief Nick Brown and San Diego Sheriff Captain Dave Brown fielded questions from the attendees. Community-focused seminars have been held, so far, in the Champagne Village, Hidden Meadows and Castle Creek areas with more to come in 2019.
