Anaheim’s Interim Fire Chief Pat Russell gave an update to council this past Tuesday on fire preparedness efforts in our city, especially in Anaheim Hills. As you know, fire safety in District 6 is my top priority as your council member.
– As shared by Chief Russell, in a partnership with our Public Utilities department, later this summer, we are installing four cameras that will be located in wildland areas – that public safety officers and city staff can view at any time. Early recognition and understanding of the magnitude of an event can bolster our response and help us initiate any evacuation orders as soon as possible.
– We also ensure our firefighters receive top training with live exercises at Camp Pendleton and Tonner Canyon. In fact, units are receiving training this week.
You can get more information on our response and recovery efforts, as well as learn how you and your family can be prepared at our website
Ready, Set, Go!
We plan to hold a town hall meeting as the summer season gets underway to hear from Anaheim’s public safety officials – and to answer your questions. Invitations will be sent out soon.
