In early April 2015, the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce announced their Wildfire Awareness Campaign.
The campaign is beginning as more of a local grassroots effort. They are working on press releases and other avenues to get the word out.
The chamber is developing a digital portfolio for the awareness campaign, and will be including the campaign in everything they do this year.
The goal of their Wildfire Awareness Campaign is to catch residents’ attention regarding the critical wildfire danger mountain communities are facing.
Residents will be directed to the excellent and comprehensive resources already in place, such as Firewise® Madera County, CAL FIRE Ready Set Go, Ready for Wildfire, Firewise® USA, Fire Adapted, and so on.
The chamber does not intend to compete with other awareness campaigns or brands, only augment them.
Firewise® Madera County is pleased to be an active participant in the campaign. As always, be sure to get started hardening your home.
