Winter heat wave in California! It’s time to think about fire season…

Image: Extreme HeatA record breaking heat wave hit California this week, and although there have been waves of rain storms, the weather folks say we remain in severe drought conditions.  This week of high temperatures are a reminder of how dry and hot conditions can trigger brush and plants to respond.

Ready San Diego offers great tips, fliers, and several preparedness videos.  Check out the “Will You Be Prepared for the Next Wildfire” booklet for smart landscaping tips using plants that are less fire prone.
