2016 Wildfire Awareness Week - Sacramento
Each year California highlights the importance of wildfire prevention and preparedness by declaring the first full week of May as “Wildfire Awareness Week”. This year during the week of May 1–7, CAL FIRE and fire departments across the state will remind residents of the dangers posed by wildfires and the simple steps that should be followed to prepare for and prevent them. Despite getting some much-needed rain this winter, we’re not out of the woods yet when it comes to the drought. Because droughts increase the risk of wildfires, being prepared is as important as ever.
