Emergency Preparedness

Ready for Wildfire – Wildfire is coming… are you ready?

CALFIRE has lots of materials on their website: Create an action plan, get texts, evacuation plan, emergency supply kit and defensible space.

Home Hardening and Defensible Space

How to provide defensible space around structure - Wildfire Today

Here is a great video From the US Forest Service to share with your neighbors about the home ignition zone.  Be sure and explore the whole website as there is an abundance of information there including home hardening.

COPE/CERT YouTube Channel

We have started recording educational presentations and posting on YouTube for your convenience. We will keep adding to the library!  check out the Community Briefing from July 2020.

We will keep adding resources to this page to help you become educated and able to educate others in your community.

COPE Protocols

As a COPE Leadership group, we have tried to share resources and information. We try to offer the documents in Word so you can edit for your needs. For instance, if our community wants to put out red flags during Red Flag Warnings, how should we do this in a consistent way and one that our community understands? Here is the Red Flag Protocol we came up with including info on how to order materials. Here is an Air Horn Protocol for you to adopt if you wish in your community.

When you start developing your own protocols here is the Protocol Template.

Here is an information sheet on how to have a Community Fire Fuel Reduction Chipper Event Guide.

We use GroupMe for emergency communication in some of our communities. This is the GroupMe Text Etiquette info sheet.
