POINT Fire 100% Contained, fire season reminders

The Point Fire is now officially 100 percent contained thanks to the dedicated firefighters and support personnel who quickly mobilized in response.

Let’s show our support for these dedicated public servants by making sure that we’re ready for the next emergency:

Because 95 percent of California wildfires are caused by human activity, here are some things we all can do to keep our communities safe:

  • Mow your lawn before 10 a.m. – keep a fire extinguisher or hose nearby and never mow if it’s windy or excessively dry.
  • Avoid using power tools that create sparks near dry vegetation.
  • Fully extinguish campfires – drown, stir, feel.
  • Keep grills away from dry vegetation.
  • Maintain vehicles to prevent sparks – secure all chains and remove dragging parts.
  • Follow local burn regulations and bans – plan, verify, apply.
  • Clear dry leaves and debris from your yard.

Remember, one less spark equals one less wildfire.
