Last month, on June 9, Nevada County public safety agencies hosted a wildfire readiness “tabletop” exercise with Lake Wildwood. The goal was to strengthen interagency communication and community response. Test CodeRED messages were sent out to the residents in Lake Wildwood, referencing their evacuation zones. I participated in the exercise and it was energizing to see how all the agencies and Lake Wildwood communicated and worked together. Everyone had input and collaborated toward the safety of that community and our county.
