Who's Responsible For Alerting The Public During An Emergency In San Diego?

In an effort to keep our citizens informed on news and more importantly, current events, our fire district has established an information "blog." We endeavor to update it as soon as feasible during ongoing emergencies.

The initial response to the (El) Monte fire was from our agency and our units worked the fire in conjunction with state and federal resources. One of our blog editors posted and updated information soon after the fire started. The traffic to our blog (and our district website) during the fire was phenomenal. Obviously, our citizens were hungry for information about the incident.

We believe we are leaders with this type of technology. We also feed Twitter and Facebook with the blog info.

Feel free to check out our post on the Monte fire and any others of interest.

Best Regards,
