Virtual Town Hall Focuses on Wildfire Preparedness

Lake County’s Risk Reduction Authority hosted a virtual town hall yesterday focused on wildfire preparedness. Cal Fire and South Lake County Fire Protection District Chief Paul Ducan said fuel reduction through vegetation management is the key to creating a good defensible space. A speaker from the County’s Code Enforcement Department said this year they are focusing on enforcing the Hazardous Vegetation Abatement Ordinance around homes. There was also discussion about emergency alert systems, including LakeCo Alerts. Watch the Town Hall on Lake County’s Facebook page or YouTube channel.
