After two recent canyon fires and drought savaged land, we repost this critical and increasingly urgent message.
Deputy Fire Chief Robert Doyle with a Message to Chevy Chase Canyon
What Canyon residents can do BEFORE our next FIRE:
- Fireproof your home. Brush clearance, fire retardant landscaping, fire proof roofs, watch the video below.
- Know evacuation routes for Chevy Chase Canyon – Ensure that your family is familiar with all possible evacuation routes.
- If you have a home bound relative, and you are away from home during an evacuation call 911 to have that patient evacuated by emergency personnel.
- Prepare an evacuation list of items to take and where they are in the case of an evacuation,(e.g., medication)
- Video-tape with narration everything of value in your home for insurance purposes and for your personal records.
- Cloud Storage. Cloud storage for securing important documents, photos, calendars, contacts, and more. Also, consider scanning critical documents that can be carried on a tiny thumb drive on your key chain.
- Planned meeting spot. Have a preplanned place for family members to meet if all communication is down.
- Official communication updates. The City of Glendale’s official twitter, @MyGlendale,
