Southern California Wildfire Assessment

Monday, October 29th, 2007

Darius and I arrived a few days ago and began viewing the areas affected by wildfire in Southern California. We set out to assess the damage and to review the overall need for volunteer assistance in order to make a decision about whether or not we would deploy to the area. We spent 3 days in Rancho Bernardo and Ramona, two of the heavily damaged areas speaking with residents, city officials and first responders about the situation in the area.
