This event will be an information sharing forum for the public.  We will be discussing a multitude of topics including:  Updates on the current fire conditions, explain the concerns facing responders, give tips and resources to protect your property, and help you formulate a plan in the case of a major event in your neighborhood.  We will provide tips on how to prepare you and your families in the event of an emergency, as well as give you information on how to help us when responding.  The best way to protect your families and property is to have a well thought out plan and notify first responders at the first sign of a problem.
