What Can County Leaders Do?

National Association of Counties Western Interstate Region Annual Conference

Hanging out with County Supervisors and Commissioners this week and we've been chatting about readiness for what is shaping up to be an epic fire season.  Here are a few questions I've asked to get them thinking about their own situational awareness:
  
Do you have current mutual and automatic aid agreements in place? 

Do you have current codes in place for the declaration of emergencies?  

Do each of your stakeholders know what their roles are in an emergency?  

Do your websites link to preparedness info such as Firewise.org , Ready, Set, GO (wildlandfirersg.org) and Ready.gov
