It's getting hot -- are you prepared for wildfires?
A home is threatened by a wall of flames near Santa Barbara, Calif.

With our hot and dry season in full force, it's also fast becoming wildfire season.

Here are some links to keep handy if and when the wildfires get going:

First of all, firewise.org will help you get prepared and what you can do to your property to lessen the risk of wildfire damage. Another good link is from the Department of Natural Resources

And finally, the National Weather Service has a great fire weather page that is a smorgasbord of current wildfire information, as well as forecasts and weather discussions.

Stay safe out there!
