Prepare For Wildfire

Make sure your family is prepared for a wildfire. The San Bernardino County Fire Protection District has amazing resources to help you protect your family and property when the next wildfire happens.

These tools will help protect your family the next time wildfire threatens your safety.

To create safer communities, County Fire initiated a program called READY! SET! GO!; targeting communities in high risk wildfire prone areas. READY! SET! GO! is about helping residents understand how their home’s location, surrounding vegetation, construction elements, and other factors place their property and them at risk during a wildfire. More importantly, it teaches them what they can do to reduce that risk – get READY! It also instructs them on the importance of having an evacuation and survival plan – get SET! Finally, it emphasizes the need to GO! and go early, before the fire arrives to ensure the safety of themselves and their family. The goal of this program is to educate and engage residents in reducing the risk in their communities, which will help save lives and property.

If you see something, say something. Report suspicious activity related to arson anonymously by calling the We-Tip hotline at 1-800-47-ARSON or visiting

To promote Wildfire Readiness within San Bernardino County, SBCoFD has implemented the Red Flag Community Notification program. When conditions for extreme fire danger arise and the National Weather Service posts a Fire Weather Watch or a Red Flag Warning, residents will see a red flag flown below the American Flag at all SBCoFD stations within the affected area. Residents will then know to prepare by focusing on preparation and prevention in and around their homes.

The free Ready SB County Disaster Preparedness App helps you get prepared and protect your loved ones should an emergency occur. All you have to do is download the app and answer five simple questions and you’ll be on your way to being prepared for an emergency.

Plus, during an emergency, you’ll also be up to date on evacuations, shelter locations, traffic alerts, and find emergency resources in your area.

During a major disaster, the San Bernardino County Fire Department uses the Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS) to send high-speed mass notifications by telephone and text messages. Help us keep you safe during a disaster by registering your mobile phone number.
