2023 Wildfire Safety Fairs Helping  Communities Prepare Ahead of Peak Wildfire Season

2023 Wildfire Safety Fairs Helping Communities Prepare Ahead of Peak Wildfire Season

For the fifth year in a row SDG&E’s Fire Science & Climate Adaptation team is inviting community members to join backcountry residents at any of our five Wildfire Safety Fairs. Everyone is invited to come out and learn more about Public Safety Power Shutoffs, emergency preparedness, and advancements that SDG&E is incorporating to help keep our region safe.

This year marks the 20-year anniversary of the Cedar Fire which was one of the largest fires in California’s history and why Sandra Younger, Cedar Fire Survivor and author of Fire Outside My Window, has been asked to be the keynote speaker at the Julian and Valley Center fairs. From 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. on July 29 and August 26 Sandra will share her story of California's Epic Cedar Fire. 

SDG&E’s Wildfire Mitigation Goats will also make an appearance at several of the fairs along with local fire departments and community partner presentations, giveaways, and demonstrations. A Kids & Critters Arts and Crafts booth will be set up as well as a Community Resource Centers information booth and sign-up assistance for power outage notifications and bill discount programs.

All Wildfire Safety Fairs are free of charge and take place from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
