New Ready For Wildfire App
Start getting ready for wildfire season with an app and you could win $10,000. CAL FIRE has launched a new Ready for Wildfire app. The app allows homeowners to track their progress while creating Defensible Space, hardening their homes with fire-resistant construction, assembling an emergency supply kit and creating a family communication and evacuation plan. It also provides critical wildfire alerts. Users can sign-up for customized alerts that will send a text or push notification to their device when a CAL FIRE is responding or assisting to a wildfire in their area. Additionally, users can set up alerts for single counties, multiple counties, or statewide. Now through May 21, users can enter the Ready for Wildfire Sweepstakes for a chance to win up to $10,000 when they download or update the app. To download the app, visit the App Store or the Google Play Store – search for CAL FIRE and install.
