Board of Supervisors Votes to Allocate More Funding to Wildfire Preparedness
Our region has invested significant resources into our regional wildfire preparedness, but the increased fire danger from drought and climate change require us to do more. The action taken today moves forward on investing more than $2.5 million towards a regional vegetation management strategy, while also taking into consideration environmental impacts, to ensure evacuation readiness. This is an important step and I will continue to work to explore anything else we can do to protect our region.
