COUNTY FIRE WARNS OF EXTREME FIRE HAZARD

With the extreme fire hazard that exists across San Bernardino County and the Inland Empire, everyone needs to “keep their guard up” as the potential for wildfire grows with the arrival of the Santa Ana wind period. These Santa Ana winds have caused many fires before and are a problem primarily through the months of October through December. CAL FIRE San Bernardino Unit Fire Prevention Battalion Chief Preston Fouts reminds us that “that one less spark can result in one less fire. By being fire safe, people really can make a difference in preventing fires from starting in the first place.” Also, make sure to create a defensible space around your property by clearing any shrubbery and making sure your house number is easily visible from the street for firefighters.
