EVERY SECOND COUNTS – PLAN 2 WAYS OUT! Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14, 2017 In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages: Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out. Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. Close doors behind you..

Message from the Fire Marshal Each year in mid-April the Fire District sends out over 13,000 postcards advising property owners of the June 15th deadline to abate their properties to be in compliance with the Moraga-Orinda Fire District’s Exterior Hazard Control Standards. All District property owners have a shared responsibility to provide a fire safe environment and maintain their property free of exterior fire hazards throughout the fire season. Abundant rainfall has led to excessive growth of plants and grasses this year. The annual growth of grasses can change from beautiful green to a very flammable brown in just a few weeks. The opportunity to get the work done after the rain has stopped and before the fire season starts can be a very narrow window. Planning to get this work done sooner will reduce wildfire risk. Each year the State of California experiences a number of significant large fires in early June which reinforces the need to have our vegetation .. Full Story

According to the ISO, the PPC is a valuable benchmark for fire districts, and plays an important role in the underwriting process at insurance companies. Most U.S. insurers use the PPC when determining coverage and p.. Full Story
