Fire Preparedness

Here is some useful information from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Department on Preparing for a disaster-

For more information see their website- it has quite a bit of information.

Although we do not have a "boiler plate" evacuation route for everyone to use- because incidents are dynamic and ever changing, you should always have a plan on what to do and what to take; at least two ways out of your neighborhood and know multiple ways to and from work.

You should share this plan with friends and family in advance so they know what to expect.

If you have animals that require evacuation, you should have an up to date plan on how to deal with them.  You should contact your local animal shelter, vet or a person with trailers that knows how to handle horses.  If you feel threatened during a disaster event and have not been advised to evacuate, you should evacuate sooner than later.  It takes time to load up dogs, cats, horses and other animals.

We encourage everyone to register your phone numbers/email addresses with Alert San Diego.  This is really important to receive up to date information.

Another helpful website is San Diego County Emergency.  There is an app you can download to your phone- links are on the page:
