What can my neighborhood do to minimize the threat of wildfires and to keep residents safe?

Report any hazardous conditions that could cause a wildfire to local fire officials. Ask the power company to clear branches from powerlines. Residents should meet to develop a neighborhood plan to work together if a wildfire is threatening the area. Keep in mind elderly or disabled neighbors who live alone or children who may be home alone.
