Getting the Word Out Door to Door
Members of the Konocti Fire Safe Council (KFSC) have launched community outreach efforts by going door to door to educate residents along Soda Bay Road and Point Lakeview Road on evacuation preparedness in the event of wildfire.
According to Cathy Sylar, Chairman of the KFSC Community Education and Outreach Committee, “residents have been very receptive to learn more on how to be ready in the event of wildfire.” KFSC volunteers have visited an estimated 150 residents in the Westwind Mobile Home Park, Walnut Cove Mobile Home Park, and surrounding neighborhoods.
Educational materials handed out to Konocti area residents included Zonehaven magnets, sign up information for wildfire notifications from both Lake County Alerts and Watch Duty, and how to prepare emergency go bags. Konocti Fire Safe Council considers getting this information out especially critical to residents along the Soda Bay corridor, as they share a single road in and out should an evacuation occur.
