Are You Prepared for the Next Fire?
Are you prepared for the next fire and evacuation in S.B. County? On cool days like we've been having, it's easier to calmly do the work necessary...except who wants to think about fire! Northern California is experiencing multiple fires, and Gov. Brown declared a State of Emergency today for Lake County.
"Officials say to please remember your pets, personal belongings, computers, prescriptions, photos, paperwork, and phones if time allows. Please try to close all windows and doors as well when you evacuate."
My go-to for information is always Edhat first, then KEYT. But, here are a couple off-the-beaten-track suggestions, California meteorological & climatological updates hand filtered for the 805. California wildfires, 805 Weather https://twitter.com/805Weather, and Ham Radio AI6YR (Ben in Newbury Park). This Ham Radio account is mostly active during major weather disasters. https://twitter.com/ai6yrham?lang=en. You don't have to belong to twitter to follow these.
What recommendations do Edhatters have for preparation?
