Hot, Dry Weather Coming - Stay Fire Prepared & Alert

Dry, hot temps this weekend and into next week mean higher fire danger. Stay alert, gas up the car, drag out the generator, and have your emergency kit ready. Humidity is predicted to drop to below 10%, with wind gusts to 30mph in passes. Check around your home's perimeter for combustibles alongside walls or under eaves and decks that can create "fire ladders." Being fire-ready is critical through the next 4-6 weeks. Have a back-up plan if SDG&E cuts off power. Keep your cellphone charged and ready.
