It can be a lot to digest and think about, and you may be reading this thinking, “I’ll put my go-bag together tomorrow” or “my neighborhood would never have to evacuate because of a [INSERT NATURAL DISASTER].” But, if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that we must be prepared and it’s up to us to plan for ourselves and our families in the event of an emergency.
We’ve received a number of questions from our San Rafael community about what an evacuation would look like and what we’re doing to prepare, so let’s talk about it! Send your questions in advance to San Rafael Fire Chief Darin White and Emergency Manager Quinn Gardner and they’ll answer them next Monday, August 31 at 6PM. Meanwhile, check out this information on our website about preparing for wildfires.
