While the most destructive fire in California was only recently 100% contained and our community bears witness to the unimaginable devastation experienced in Paradise, fire prevention and preparedness are at the top of everyone’s mind. The threat of wildfire is urgent and efforts to safeguard the community require a multi-jurisdictional, all-hands-on-deck community approach.
December 5th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Board Chambers of the Rood Center, representatives from CALFIRE, local law enforcement, city officials, and staff from Nevada County are partnering to host a Wildfire Prevention and Preparedness Town Hall. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from fire experts and community leadership, as well as ask questions and provide solutions.
A resource fair will take place simultaneously in the Rood Center lobby. Nevada County residents may speak with 211, the Office of Emergency Services, Codered, the Fire Safe Council, the Fire Wise Coalition, and the Nevada County Conservation District learn more about about how to prevent and prepare for wildfire.
