Fire Season Resources

September 02, 2020

Fire season is a time that California, particularly the North State, is all too familiar with and it's growing longer and feels more intense every year that passes. 

Each year our forest and land management professionals do their part to help prevent fires and our brave firefighters do their part to put out the flames. However, we must also do our part and be prepared to stay safe and educate ourselves on resources of preparing for an emergency, what to do in an emergency, along with fire recovery and supporting others.

We’ve compiled a directory of links to sites with information about wildfire season and keeping you safe. This directory will be updated as new resources become available.
