Help reduce wildfire risk and better prepare your family and your home with our -Ready,Set,Go prograrn.
JOIN US AND LEARN HOW TO:
Get your home READY by creating defensible space to buffer it from flammable vegetation such as grass, trees and shrubs. Defensible space helps to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and increases the chance of your home surviving a wildfire.
SET your family up to be prepared for wildfires and other disasters by creating an action plan that will help you survive and communicate if you must evacuate your home.
Be ready to GO. Take the evacuation steps necessary to give your
house o t e est chance of surviving a wildfire. Stay informed and leave early to avoid being caught in fire, smoke or road congestion.

Brush chipping signs are up at the park entrances. The dates this year are Saturday, May 4th 2019. The gates will be opened by 8 AM and closed by 6 or 7 PM .
This is a free program for Chemeketa Park residents only and it is very important that we take advantage! After an incredibly wet and windy winter, the vegetation, brush, downed trees and branches will pose a significant threat to maintaining the defensible spaces throughout our community. Now is the time to start preparing for the fire season that will be upon us very soon.
You can read all about the Santa Clara County FireSafe Council’s programs and other fantastic sources of information about defensible space, other wildfire safety topics and preparation information at www.sccfiresafe.org.
Now is the time to start preparing for the upcoming fire season.
Please take a minute to read through the minutes of the Evacuation Workshop done one year ago (November, 2017). The information is a good reminder to have your emergency plan and Go Bag updated each year, and if you haven't prepared either, this can help you begin with that project. October is fire safety month, so check your property to make sure you have a defensible space and rid your property of dangerous brush and wood that can be a fire hazard.
When each one of us stays safe, we all stay safe!
Saturday, October 20th at Chemeketa Park Playground12:00 p.m. till 4:00 p.m.

To Chemeketa Park Community:
The Board has decided to postpone the re-sealing of the roads inside Chemeketa Park to next year. Travis Bond with Bond Paving Solutions suggests that we wait until the sun is at a higher angle in the sky in order to get maximum sun warmth on the roads as they put on the sealant.
Thank you for voicing your opinions. It provided at lot of good feedback and ideas to make the process go more smoothly next year. There have been potential maps created with proposed areas for each day and we can also utilize the PODs in assisting with parking and support.
As soon as we have a locked in date from Bond Paving Solutions, we will communicate it to the residents and begin the pre-planning. Thank you for your patience and support.
If you have any questions, please contact our Business Manager, Lisa Ridenour, at 408-792-7762.
