The newest program in Wildland Fire Defense Planning and Prevention is Ready! Set! Go!. Ventura County has created a booklet you can download from this link.

If you did not read this article in the 10/30/12 Orange County Register, it is worth your time to read it here. Here is one quote: "The truth is California is so ill-prepared for a major disaster that the state government created a website - TotallyUnprepared.com - to highlight disaster readiness." This article was in the business section, but it is for everyone. If you know anyone who thinks a disaster will never happen here, please encourage them to read this article.

Explore this website for the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), www.nasaa.org, and find Investor Alerts and Tips to help you avoid investment scams and a link to contact your regulator if you have had problems.

On the website for the California Society of Enrolled Agentswww.csea.org, look under taxpayer help to find a section on Disaster Services and Preparedness with a list of things to do beforehand and a Record Reconstruction Guide to help you after a disaster.
