Rancho Cucamonga firefighters stand ready to respond to wildfires following joint training exercises with Federal, State, and local agencies that strengthen relationships and refine strategies and tactics for an effective response. Community help is also critical to remaining resilient to the threat of wildfires in our region. We encourage you to take this opportunity to not only consider the tips above but also put a plan together that benefits the entire ReadyRC community. History shows that wildfire threats are not a matter of if, but when. Join our efforts to be a safe community that is always #ReadyRC.
