The emotional effects will never be completely healed and Julian and Cuyamaca will never be the same. After 30 years of firefighting in our community I want to share a few thoughts with you to give you and your home a better chance of survival in the event of a fire. 1 .First and foremost is a "Defensible Space", Cal fire requires a 100' defense zone around your home, as you know this may be adequate in most cases but slope and fuel (vegetation). types might warrant even more, Cal Fire has some very, informative handouts to assist Checking Savings you in creating this space around your home.

It's this time of year that gardens and flowers are done for the ........ i season, potting soil in flower beds and pots is a very receptive bed for embers, so if you have them close to your home, move them away t~ 2033 Main St., Julian I 765-2765 i from the house until next growing season. Member FDIC k i . 3. Firewood, is another issue that firefighters have to deal with during a fire, keep it away from you home at least 30', and cover it with a flame resistive canvas tarp. If you keep it on your porch or right next to the house, have the minimal amount and keep it in a wood in a NorrMtY I)IJBLI( covered box, so embers can't ignite it. In the event that there is a fire PllZZ /Becky Gambril '\ move it away from your house. 4.

Box 639 Julian, CA 92036 emai/: /etters@ju/iannews.com in person: Julian News Office 1453 Hollow Glen Road (nam - 5:00pro Wed-FrO Deadline is Friday Noon for the next weeks issue on where your water sources are and instructions on how to operate any pumps you might have. You can also have the locations of and any "special" hazards there might be, this could be from a 50 gallon drum of gasoline or maybe a hand dug well in the back yard. Have your hoses out and ready to use, I can't tell you how many time a garden hose had made a difference. 7. Move all flammable materials away from your home, this would include outdoor furniture (wood and plastic), Close your windows, if you have time cover the vents ino your attic do so, make some pre cut covers in the winter and mark them for the spot they will be installed, in th event you don't have time to install them leave them in a location that they can be seen, if time allows firefighters might be able to utilize them. 8. Have a plan, some residents have their important items packed and ready to go in a moments notice if they are evacuated. Sometimes you will not have an opportunity to pack before you leave, or you may only have a few minutes to gather what you can and go, keep your car keys in an established location where they are readily available. Make a list of what you will take with you if you must leave right away (also note its location), photos and important documents are typically the first thing people take. Part of your plan should include and friend or neighbor, that in the event of your absence, thet will know what to take and what they need to do to ensure your important items and pets are cared for. The key for this plan to work effectively, is to practice. Take some time to run through a "what if" scenario, give yourself different time frames from minutes to hours, document the items you will take, what you need do outside of your home to include the above mentioned preventative measures that time allows. The main reason for these drills is to give you a perspective on the time it takes to load your car with belongings, gather your pets and be 'able to leave well before the fire arrives. So using the above information, you will increase the chances of your home surviving a fire, and have a good plan on what to do if evacuated, and when you leave, knowing you've done everything you could do for yourselves and your home. One last item rd like to cover is people that have made the decision to stay and ignore the evacuation orders. Our state allows you to stay if you choose to do so, in my career I have heard the 'Tve lived here for years and seen other fires here and rm staying", the biggest problem with this statement, is that fire conditions are never the same and what happened last time might not compare to this time.
