New videos help Rolling Hills residents prevent wildfires – Daily Breeze

Rolling Hills city officials, concerned residents and the Los Angeles County Fire Department want to get the word out about an urgent threat — wildfires are now a year-round threat.

To do this, the city recently posted six short videos on its website in which Deputy Forester Trevor Moore from the LA County Fire Department’s forestry division teaches how to help prevent wildfires in his hometown and the Palos Verdes Peninsula as a whole. .

This is the second installment of this series of videos on reducing dead vegetation in canyons. The first series, which aired last year, was about how residents can reduce the risk of their homes catching fire with the help of neighborhood bullock captains.

One of the main concerns of the peninsula is the volcanic vegetation and rolling hills of three miles of hills, with the highest elevation at 2,100 feet in a hot and dry Mediterranean climate.

But Peninsula residents in all four cities can take tips from the videos. The videos were inspired by the Lower Block Captains program, which connects neighbors with first responders during emergencies like wildfires or earthquakes.
