The County of San Diego Office of Emergency Services thanks its Wildfire Partners for assisting in getting these important messages out to San Diego County residents.
Before the ThreatIn 2009, the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services in partnership with The San Diego County Fire Chiefs Association and Farmers Insurance Group launched an unprecedented regionwide fire preparedness campaign.
OES assisted in coordinating a door-to-door campaign on July 25 and August 1 in which 55 fire departments and thousands of community volunteers delivered preparedness materials to homes that are adjacent to wildland areas or urban canyons.
A DVD was produced to address the San Diego region about fire hazards and steps residents can take to mitigate risks on their properties. The DVD is subtitled in Spanish and includes a bonus folder of additional preparedness lists and tip sheets that can be viewed if the DVD is viewed on a home computer.
The goal of the campaign is to distribute 400,000 DVD packets to San Diego County residents through the remainder of the fire season. Before the Threat packets are available at most fire stations and local libraries, or by calling OES at (858) 565-3490.
