READY, SET GO!
WILDFIRE ACTION PLAN

This award-winning, national program helps community members be Ready with preparedness understanding, be Set with situational awareness when fire threatens, and to Go, acting early when a fire starts.

Wildfires are now a year-round reality in Ventura County. This means that both firefighters and residents have to be on heightened alert for the threat of wildfire at all times.

Firefighters train hard and make countless preparations to be ready for a wildfire. Residents need to do the same. Successfully preparing for a wildfire requires you to take personal responsibility for protecting yourself, your family and your property.

FLOOD PREPARATION

The Ready, Set, Go! Flood guide provides a preparation plan for wet weather, including how to obtain and use sandbags, and where to sign-up for emergency alert notifications.

To learn more about flood risks or insurance rates, visit VCFloodinfo.com

During heavy rainfall, monitor the news, websites and social media sites for updated weather conditions. The phrasing meteorologists use is important; a Flood Watch means flooding is possible in your area, Flood Warning means flooding in your area is already occurring or is imminent, and Flash Flood is sudden violent flooding. Flash floods often come up quickly during heavy rain.

WILDFIRE ACTION PLAN (ESPANOL)

The Ventura County Fire Department takes every precaution to help protect you and your property from a wildfire. But the reality is, during a major wildfire, there will simply not be enough fire engines or firefighters to defend every home, so you must become part of the solution.

If your home or business borders a natural area, what firefighters call the Wildland Urban Interface, you are at risk from a wildfire. And, if you live within one mile of a natural area, you live in the Ember Zone. Homes in the Ember Zone are at risk from wind-driven embers from a wildfire.

WILDFIRE PLAN: FARMERS, RANCHERS, GROWERS

You must do all you can to make your home resistant to wildfires and prepare your family to leave early and safely. We call this process, “Ready, Set, Go!”

On this page you’ll find information about the Ember Zone and how to prepare your home or business to resist a wildfire. We’ll show you the importance of having defensible space around your home and the preparations you need to make so you can leave early, evacuating well ahead of the fire.

READY, SET GO!
TRAIL USERS

Wildfires, fueled by a build-up of dry vegetation and driven by hot, dry winds, are extremely dangerous and almost impossible to control. Many residents have built their homes and landscaped without fully understanding the impact a fire could have on them. This website will help you prepare your home so you can leave early, confident that you’ve done everything you can reasonably do to protect your home.

It’s not a question of if, but when, the next wildfire will occur. That’s why the most important person protecting your life and property is not a firefighter, but you. With advance planning and preparation, you can dramatically increase your safety and the survivability of your property.
