San Jose Fire Department Ready, Set, Go!
Ready, Set, Go!, a new program San Jose Fire Department (SJFD) is rolling out in partnership with the FireSafe Council and San Jose Office of Emergency Services, educates residents in high fire risk areas how to prepare for wildfires and what to do during a wildfire. SJFD, the FireSafe Council, and student volunteers blanketed the Suncrest community in East Foothills on April 30th, 2011, just before Wildfire Awareness Week on May 1-7, going door to door to talk with residents and hand out the program brochure and other information.
