What: OCFA Fire Chief Keith Richter, Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, and OC Parks Director Mark Denny will outline what their agencies are doing to prevent wildfires. They will discuss how to fire proof your home, what to look for in reference to suspicious behavior, and who to call for notification. We are enlisting the community to be the “eyes and ears” in preventing Wildland fires. Fire is a severe hazard for those communities that are built close to nature and residents need to be involved in order to prevent future blazes. Working together with partners and residents are among our best prevention tools. We want “would-be” arsonists to know that they will be seen. There will be LIVE demonstrations of an OCFA Hand Crew performing progressive hose lays and cutting line; Agency helicopters conducting water drops as well as showing video downlink from their helicopter, which is a valuable resource on wildfires. OCFA and OCSD will display their new command/rehabilitation trailers along with OCFA’s urban interface engines.
