Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week (FPW) is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. From October 6-12th the Palo Alto Fire Department will be observing FPW with educational events focusing on this year’s campaign: “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out.  For resources on creating an Escape Plan click here

Prepare For Wildfire: READY, SET, GO!

Ready, Set, Go!


Whether you live in the Foothills of Palo Alto or the flatlands closer to the Bay, preparing for wildfires makes a lot of sense. The City of Palo Alto works every year to minimize the risk but we can only do so much. Every property owner must take the steps to prepare for wildfires. Get the details by visiting our Ready, Set, Go resources and learning how to protect your home from embers with our Ember Aware flyer (PDF).
