CAL FIRE Increases Staffing for Extreme Fire Danger Conditions

Sacramento, CA...CAL FIRE firefighters are staffing up and preparing for the forecasted extreme fire weather across California. The National Weather Service has issued red flag warnings and fire weather watches for areas of northern, central and southern California. This will likely be the strongest offshore wind event so far this season.




“With some of the most destructive and deadliest fires occurring October through December, we need Californians to not be complacent. Wind driven fires move fast, and residents need to be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice in the event of a wildfire,” said Chief Thom Porter, CAL FIRE director. “We have increased our staffing, but need the public to remain vigilant. It is important to follow evacuation orders and leave early as fires move very fast under these conditions."

This week, being Fire Prevention Week, is the perfect time to make sure your family has emergency supplies and an evacuation plan. The tragic fires that occurred around this time last year should serve as a reminder for everyone to be ready for the unexpected.

With extreme fire danger conditions, some areas are seeing electricity being turned off by their utility companies preemptively. CAL FIRE is not involved in the decision making of when and where the power is turned off, or when the power will be turned back on when such conditions arise. The only time that CAL FIRE will request a power outage from a utility company is when there is an active wildfire around powerlines that firefighters are fighting. The power shut-off request will only be for within the fire area and this is to provide for the safety of firefighters within that area. Comments, questions or concerns about the current power outages should be directed toward your utility company.

CAL FIRE urges everyone to exercise extreme caution when in or near the wildland or open areas to prevent sparking a fire. A few helpful reminders and safety tips include:
Don’t mow or trim dry grass on windy days
Never pull your vehicle over in dry grass
Target shoot only in approved areas, use lead ammunition only, and never at metal
Check and obey burn bans
Ensure campfires are allowed, and if so, be sure to extinguish them completely
Report any suspicious activities to prevent arson, see something – say something
To learn how you can be prepared for wildfires and evacuation steps, visit ReadyForWildfire.org and preventwildfireca.org.

    Exactly, we are moving backwards because we have people in control who refuse to learn from lessons in the past. They can only create giant corrupt and inefficient organizations, that only seek to bleed massive amounts of money from taxpayers. Stopping at nothing, even creating life threatening events and hardships to extract the wealth for themselves. These organizations need taken down, PG&E, CALFIRE..................

    If the folks would manage maintain the front lawn at the property they somewhat own. Instead of waiting for great grandpa Bernie to give them a hand out. As well as not waiting for auntie Pelosi/ Callaway only thing they worried about was the money they received. We look out for one another’s. We the people not we the beggars. We have to point the fingers, but point at the yourself. Quite complaining and maybe consider next time you vote.
