Wildfire Impact: Prevention and Preparedness

Camp Fire

The whole world watched in horror as the Camp Fire completely eradicated the small town of Paradise last year, and it made those of us living in forested areas more aware of the very real possibility of wildfire.  As people increasingly move from the cities into the beautiful Sierra foothills, the threat of the loss of homes to wildfire gets exponentially greater.  Forest fires are inevitable, but losing your home to one does not have to be.   Fire safety is an important and timely topic as we are nearing fire season and proper preparation can save your home…and your life.

To help individuals understand the local fire dangers and how to best prepare for them, Mary Owens will host a complimentary seminar open to the public at her office located at 426 Sutton Way, Suite 110, in Grass Valley, California.  The seminar will be offered from 2-4 p.m. each day May 14-17.

Last year, Mary expanded Owens Estate & Wealth by opening a second location in downtown Auburn and will host an additional session from 2-4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, at the Auburn Holiday Inn, located at 120 Grass Valley Highway, in the Auburn Terrace room.

During this year’s spring seminar, in addition to the wildfire information, Mary will present an economic update covering local, national, and global economies, and will discuss the state of housing in Nevada County.  Mary will proceed in showing a short video in which she interviews Jim Turner, the Nevada County Consolidated Fire Chief, about what people need to know about wildfire danger locally, how to prepare your home to improve its chances of surviving a wildfire, creating evacuation plans and routes, and more.

This educational seminar will provide invaluable insight and guidelines for individuals and businesses alike that will help everyone to feel more confident about their own fire plans.  Following the presentation, Mary will offer attendees an opportunity to ask questions and invites everyone to enjoy refreshments and gourmet hors d’oeuvres.

Each year, Mary produces two On Point videos, which addresses fresh ideas and current trends affecting the economy.  These videos are presented during Mary’s annual Fall and Spring Seminars. Previous segments have covered topics such as China, Rethinking Education, Retraining our Workforce, Manufacturing, Brexit, The Popular Vote vs. The Electoral College, and more.
