El Dorado Fire Community Relations Essay

Excerpt from Essay :



The increased danger of wildfires in the undeveloped land surrounding and within El Dorado County, and directly bordering the community of El Dorado Hills, is one of the major perennial concerns both of the community of El Dorado and of the fire department operating within this community (EDC Fire 2010; EDH Fire 2010). Dry summers and the irregular terrain that is conducive to brush growth very easily catches fire from a variety of ignition sources, and because of the fact that the wild areas so prone to the fires border directly on business and residential communities there is a special risk for damage to both property and individuals form these wildfires (EDC Fire 2010). Home and business owners whose property directly borders on or lies close to the actual line of the Wildlife-Urban Interface are especially concerned by this threat every year, and the fire department is itself well aware of the issues and listens regularly to community feedback regarding high risk areas (EDC Fire 2010; EDH Fire 2010). At the same time, the fire department maintains updated information about fire dangers on the Internet and through a variety of other means, giving the community information they can use to protect themselves and their property throughout the year and especially at times of greater risk (EDH Fire 2010; EDC Fire 2010).

The fire department in El Dorado Hills and El Dorado County has a unique problem to deal with when it comes to wildfires. They face this challenge in the same manner as firefighters everywhere, however -- with a commitment to public safety, planning, and swift yet careful action.
