On Saturday, May 7, the community will have the opportunity to learn about the upcoming fire season and the steps being taken by local agencies and organizations to prepare for potential wildfires in Orange County. During the program, attendees will hear presentations from fire prevention specialists, wildland resource planners, parks rangers and fire agency representatives.
This year’s keynote presentation will feature Orange County Bird of Prey Center, Executive Director, Peggy Chase. Throughout her presentation, Peggy will share her wisdom on “Wildfire Impacts on Raptors (and other local wildlife)”.
As wildfire season approaches, it’s important to remember that community members have the ability to help prevent a catastrophic wildfire. Most wildfire events are caused by humans and many ignitions occur along roadways. Simple tasks, such as taking your car in for a tune-up and being cautious when pulling over on the side of a road can help reduce the chance of igniting a wildfire.
