The Cedar Fire in October 2003 burned over 28,000 acres and destroyed nearly 335 homes in San Diego County.
As fire season approaches, San Diego county fire officials urge homeowners to prepare and perform loss reduction maintenance. Above normal annual rainfall has contributed to increased brush, which is the primary reason for wildfire outbreaks. Performing the proper preventative maintenance on your home and with your family can significantly decrease your chances of experiencing a wildfire loss. Such prevention strategies include coordinating an evacuation plan, preparing an emergency kit, clearing brush and weeds away from property, and organizing key documents and belongings. For specific preventative measures please visit the U.S Fire Administration website.
