California based natives have to endure hot sweaty summers with the sun blazing down on long hot days while the night’s heat is still smoking throughout the long May through September months. It is too often that we forget that there is some one our community who fight the heat all year round and do so at any given moment. We at SERVPRO of Laguna Beach/Dana Point would like to take a moment to thank all of our local Firefighters for their hard work, sacrifice and endless effort throughout the year. It is through them and their resources that we are able to better understand fire safety for our community. Be sure to take a moment to visit the Laguna Beach local Fire Department page here or the Dana Point Fire Department webpage here.
Based upon information from our local heroes, there are four main fire stations in Laguna Beach and two in Dana Point. These six stations work year round to be ready at a moment’s notice in case an emergency should arise, but to be better prepared, these stations went that extra step to care four our community by providing to us a Disaster Preparedness cheat sheet. It does more than cover Fires. It covers earthquakes, emergency safety kits, floods and even those wild fires that happen from time to time. They even make learning safety fun with a special kids zone here.
The Fire Departments in Dana Point take it further to keep us informed on information such as smoke alarms and just what we need to be on the look out for when it comes to use and maintenance. It is all too often that the disasters we encounter are a direct results from the steps in safety not taken. Also through the Dana Point Fire Website you can access information about SONGS (San Onofre Nuclear Generating Stations), which covers health and safety in Dana Point and in the surrounding cities as well such as San Clemente or San Juan Capistrano.
After all is said and done, with all the information provided to us as a community, what it boils down to is that we wants to say THANK YOU! Thank you to all involved in helping our community stay safe. To the fire fighting crews, the dispatchers who take the emergency calls, to the first emergency responders, the volunteers and the online information teams…THANK YOU! We are proud to work with you those endless hours to help keep our communities safe and disaster ready.
