The weather has started to warm up over the last few days. Unfortunately, that means we are heading into fire season.
This week is Wildfire Preparedness Week. Officials are warning that this fire season is likely to be more active that last because of the relative lack of rain and snow in March and April.
We are all likely going to be spending a lot of time in our front and back yards this summer so now is a good time to create defensible space in your yard and prepare your home for fire season.
Defensible space is a buffer created by removing dead plants, grass, and weeds. Preparing your home includes using construction materials to help a home withstand flying embers. The Santa Clara County Fire Department has tips and information here
Today, the final steel girder was put into place at the County’s Vietnamese American Service Center on Senter Road in San Jose.
When it opens next year, the center will be a 30,000 square foot, one-stop hub for Vietnamese residents to obtain County health and social services in a culturally competent and language-accessible manner. These services and resources include senior wellness programs, health screenings, mental health services, dental services, vaccinations, and pharmacy.
