Wildfire Preparedness Awareness Campaign Underway

1 Jul, 2024

The City of Santa Fe Fire Department (SFFD) has launched a Wildfire Preparedness Awareness Campaign to help citizens get ready for potential wildfires.

SFFD is conducting a free home assessment for homeowners to discuss any needed mitigation on their property to help prevent a wildfire or slow one down. Contact Wildland Urban Interface Specialist Porfirio Chavarria by phone or email at pnchavarria@santafenm.gov or 505-660-3732 to set up a one-on-one appointment.

Also included in the campaign:

  • Focus landscaping on xeriscaping to reduce dry vegetation on property
  • Become familiar with Ready, Set, Go!
  • Have a Go Bag easily accessible and ready to deploy if the event is needed.
  • Know your evacuation routes.
  • If possible, have an evacuation plan set up and make family members know of the possible intention if the event happens.
  • Sign up for Alert Santa Fe.
