OES 336 is currently at the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County as part of Strike Team 6840A. Here are some resources and steps you can take now to prepare for fire weather:
|Be sure to register you cell and internet phones with AlertSanDiego to receive emergency and evacuation notices for your neighborhood.
|At this time, there are no confirmed Public Safety Power Shutoffs within our district; however, it’s always good to be prepared for a power outage, planned or unplanned.
|Become familiar with SDG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff program and view their outage map.
|Prepare for evacuation, including evacuation of your pets and large animals. Have an evacuation plan that includes where you are going and how you will get there. Have a back up plan and a plan for if you cannot get out. Know what you are going to take with you. Leave early!
|Download the San Diego County Emergency App.
|Web cameras located throughout the western united states allow you monitor fire conditions in your area.
|Twitter is the easiest and fastest way for the Fire District to get information out during an emergency. You do not have to have a Twitter account to view ours.
