SAFETY TIPS

  • Downed Power Lines - Windy conditions can cause power lines to fall. This can create hazards – electrifying puddles, wet grass, and the surrounding area. Don’t touch anyone or anything in contact with a downed power line. Always assume downed power lines are energized and dangerous. Stay away and call 911.

  • Thanksgiving Fire Safety - Keeping fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous but hectic time is important, especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home.

  • Wildfires

         Fire is, and always has been, a natural part of Southern California’s landscape. Wildfires are often fueled by dry vegetation and driven by hot, dry “Santa Ana” winds, making them extremely dangerous and difficult to control. Fire season is now year-round and requires everyone to be on heightened alert, especially for those living in wildland area communities.

          Follow the steps from the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s Ready! Set! Go! Your Personal Wildfire Action Plan to protect yourself, your family and home from a devastating wildfire.
