Sunday kicks off Wildfire Preparedness Week across the state.

Despite plenty of winter rain, the state is on high alert for fire season as abundant grass dries in the summer heat.

This week, Cal Fire and local fire departments are reminding all residents of the dangers posed by wildfires and the simple steps to follow to prepare and prevent them.

You can also download Cal Fire’s “Ready for Wildfire” app as the perfect tool for year-round preparation.
