Fire officials are calling this one of the worst fire seasons on record in California. The Lompoc Fire Department described the recent San Miguelito fire as “fair”, saying that residents need to be prepared to evacuate at any time. Otherwise, they could be trapped.
Officials say residents should have a “go-bag” filled with important documents, medication, identification and other important items ready just in case. To help residents be prepared, the Lompoc Fire Department is hosting a “Read, Set, Go” fire preparedness event on June 7 at the local Home Depot.
