Fire Safety News
In the wake of the two catastrophic firestorms of 2003 and 2007 in San Diego County, a wealth of fire safety and prevention information has been published by local and state emergency response agencies. Below, you will find links to several of these sources. The list is, by no means, complete nor is it meant to refer you to the absolute authority on fire safety and prevention. The capricious nature of weather and fire behavior cannot be reduced to absolute rules or procedures.
The links below will provide you with a wealth of information on making your home and family more fire safe. Please visit them to begin your own odyssey of fire safe education by following their links to even more information. Each link will open a new browser page with a description of what the websites have to offer and hints for navigating to especially useful areas.
