In Case of Emergency

As residents of the San Marcos Pass community we have learned to be self reliant and sufficient. We frequently depend on our neighbours for a helping hand. However, in the event you see something suspicious, a traffic collision or a fire, please call 9-1-1 directly. There have been several recent incidents where people have called neighbours first. The can cause confusion and further delay emergency response should it be required. It is better to be on the safe side and report something that turns out to be nothing than to not report something real.

Ready! Set! Go!

The program Ready! Set! Go! was intorduced in May of this year to educate Southern California residents about what is now a year-round threat of wildfire.  This program is designed to gain public involvement in reducing life and property loss caused by wildfires.  Ready! Set! Go! has the following three steps:

Ready! Prepare yourself, your family and your property.

Set!  Monitor fire weather / activity and prepare to evacuate.

Go!  Leave early when directed to by public safety officials.

Ready! Set! Go! is endorsed by the Santa Barbara County Fire Chief’s Association to provide a strategic approach and a specific action plan to aid local, state and federal fire agencies in providing one unified message. Ready! Set! Go! is endorsed by the California Emergency Management Agency and FIRESCOPE. 

Listen to Community Alert, October 6, 2009: Chief Michael Mingee, Carpinteria-Summerland FPD and Captain David Sadecki, PIO, Santa Barbara County FD talk about “Read, Set, Go” on behalf of the Santa Barbara County Fire Chief’s Association.
