As 2011 comes to a close and we usher in the new year, why not make a New Year’s resolution that’s easy to keep?


The Santa Barbara County Fire Department urges people to make a resolution by taking a few simple steps to prepare your family, home, business, and community for potential disasters.

•Be Informed: Know what to do before, during and after an emergency.

•Make a Plan: Prepare, plan and stay informed for potential emergencies.

•Build a Kit: Build a disaster preparedness kit.

•Get Involved: Find Opportunities to support community preparedness.

•Business: Plan for and protect your business and employees for emergencies.

•Kids: Create a personalized “Just in Case” family plan and teach it to your kids.

•Pets: If you have pets, you should also include your pets in your disaster plans.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department reminds people to be ready and have a plan of action in place in case a disaster occurs in your area and resolve to be ready.
