People gather to collect fire safety materials during a public safety fair

Engaging the Community to Improve Resilience

California Fire Prevention members joined with the City of Murrieta and the Murrieta Fire and Rescue Department in teaching people how to be better prepared during a public safety fair in the city. Along with providing printed material on how to survive a house fire (working smoke alarms being key), and when to follow the protocol set forth by Ready, Set, Go, residents were taught how to perform hands-only CPR.

The Murrieta community is a tight one, and engagement in public safety fairs such as this create a bond with the fire department and partners. CalFire Prevention has been working with Murrieta for several years to build a more resilient community.
