Fighting Fire With Education: Learn How to Prepare for a Wildfire
Town of Paradise Battalion Chief Rick Manson shares tips on how to prepare your home, family, and community for wildfire.
By now, everyone in Paradise—and the American West—is familiar with wildfires. While they’re most common in the summer and fall, they can occur year-round. And unfortunately, the fact remains: despite the Camp Fire removing much of the tinder in Town, wildfire is still possible.
Preparation is key to protect lives and property, so we asked CAL FIRE/Paradise Fire Battalion Chief Rick Manson to share more about how the Town— and its residents—can be prepared.
Visit the blog to learn about these helpful tips to be prepared for this fire season.
