Before the Threat

OES assisted in coordinating a door-to-door campaign in which 55 fire departments and thousands of community volunteers delivered preparedness materials to homes that are adjacent to wildland areas or urban canyons.

A DVD was produced for the San Diego region about fire hazards and steps residents can take to mitigate risks on their properties. The DVD is subtitled in Spanish and includes a bonus folder of additional preparedness lists and tip sheets that can be accessed on a home computer.

The campaign resulted in the distribution of approximately 400,000 DVD packets to San Diego County residents.
