Los Altos Grant Funds Neighborhood Wildfire Evacuation Workshop

Block Action Team #52 held a Wildfire Evacuation Workshop in a neighbor’s home.  Funded by a City of Los Altos Community and Emergency Preparedness Grant, Block Action Team Leader Sue Hiller brought in the Santa Clara County Fire Safe Council to teach this 90-minute workshop which guides neighbors to become more fire-aware, build their family communication plan, start an evacuation plan, and build a “Go Bag” including important family papers and identification.

Block Action Teams work together to “Connect, Care, and Prepare” and make Los Altos an even better place to call home.  For more information, to check if your neighborhood has a “BAT,” or to register for the April 25th Leader training, please sign up.

To learn more about wildfire preparedness and evacuations, please attend the Los Altos Wildfire Preparedness Community Meeting on Tuesday, April 16, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, at the Los Altos Youth Center, 1 North San Antonio Road, Los Altos.  Click here to register.
