Check out our Ready, Set, Go! Program
Through the Ready, Set, Go! (RSG) Program we engage with the residents of Sonoma County in wildland fire community risk reduction.
Through the RSG! Program we help residents gain an understanding of their wildland fire risk and actions individuals can take to reduce that risk. Engaging in this dialogue is particularly important because we are a trusted voice in the community who can explain the role that individuals should play in preparedness and early evacuation to increase the safety of residents and first responders.
The RSG! Program works in complementary and collaborative fashion with FirewiseUSA® and other existing wildland fire education efforts. It amplifies the preparedness messages to better achieve the common goal we all share of fire adapted communities. The more residents actively involved in mitigating their properties and preparing for evacuation, the greater a community’s resiliency to wildland fire.
Please let us know if you would like us to deliver a RSG! Program presentation to your community group. As we encourage residents to take personal responsibility for preparing their property and family for wildland fire, residents become an active part of the solution.

As a member of the RSG! Program we are eligible for grant funding and free resources including printed action guides, flyers, Go Bags, and much more.
The RSG! Program is managed by the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). Launched nationally in March 2011 at the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI 2011) Conference, the program helps fire departments teach individuals who live in high-risk wildland fire areas how to best prepare themselves and their properties to adapt to living with fire.
