Defensible Space is space that can be defended. It’s as simple as that. If you prepare your home and neighborhood so that it doesn’t burst into flames and spread rapidly from home to home, it can be defended. Take a look around...

We’ve talked about Random Acts of Kindness (RAK). Let’s talk about this idea again. I think about the ‘old timers’ on the coast and what that meant for them. I truly believe it was an essential part of their life to depend on neighbors and community. June is full of good times on the coast. How about a walk on pristine land at Jenner in the morning, an afternoon music performance at the Timber Cove Resort with Kyle, a browse through the Gualala Arts exhibit halls, dinner at one of the wonderful places to eat in Gualala or Point Arena, and an evening performance at the Theater. Stay overnight at the Lighthouse in one of the Coast Guard cottages or the Bryan B Preserve cottages.

CAL FIRE investigators were immediately dispatched to the Camp Fire and began working to determine the origin and cause of the fire. After a very meticulous and thorough investigation, CAL FIRE has determined that the Camp Fire was caused by electrical transmission lines owned and operated by Pacific Gas and Electricity (PG&E) located in the Pulga area.

California’s three largest energy companies announced a coordinated wildfire safety and awareness campaign to prepare Californians for the threat of extreme weather and power outages during times of wildfire danger. Energy companies turn off power to fire prone areas during extreme weather events as a safety precaution. This is known as a Public Safety Power Shutoff. tel:18667436589

At a recent community meeting, a woman spoke in frustration...“Why do we expect public services to take care of what we should take care of ourselves? She’s part of a community group who is taking emergency preparation into their own hands. In an emergency, of any kind, there are only so many First Responders available. They will be busy. Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) & Citizens Organized to Prepare for Emergencies (COPE)  are systems people are adopting because it puts them in charge of their own needs and lives. Local governments are supporting this effort by hiring an educational leader who holds classes for neighborhod leaders and also will come to local meetings to help guide people through the process of being prepared for any emergency...fire, flood, and earthquakes.

It took me a while to feel like I belonged in Forestville.  Decades spent heading east to work in Santa Rosa meant Forestville was for weekend errands.  It was actually going to the Town Halls that got me interested in getting more out of my community.  There I got to see how I fit in.  Last month’s Town Hall had 175 people show up to learn how together we can make our community safer.
