Summer Safety Reminder from OCFA

A good reminder from OCFA this summer:

OCFA personnel have been very active this past week responding to 2660 calls. Firefighters responded to a number of working fires and more drowning calls over the busy weekend. With summer in full gear, OCFA wants to remind you to “Watch the Water” and keep a close eye on your kids when they are “in or around the pool”. Also, if you are going into the water, you should always be with a buddy and never swim alone. In addition, if you live in an area close to natural vegetation, please visit, develop a plan and “harden your home” before a wildfire threatens your neighborhood.
