Firewise Presentations

Recently CERPP and the Woodside Fire Protection District made presentations of new information to help you to prevent your home from burning in a wildland fire. This page contains copies of the presentation materials.

A YouTube video of the Melody Fire in Reno led off the presentation. Four or five homes consumed in a wildland fire in just a few minutes. Yes fire can move fast.

Battalion Chiefs Dan Ghiorso and Don Romero then gave a short presentation.
