Southern California Living

Living in Southern California, residents are very aware of the impact the Santa Ana
winds can have during brush fire season. Increased wind speeds can dramatically
change the outcome of a fire.

SERVPRO Reminders

SERVPRO of South Pasadena and San Marino would like to remind residents of the San Gabriel
Valley and surrounding areas tips to keep your home safe during fire season.

  • Keep trees pruned. Wildfire can spread to treetops. Check with your local
    fire department to determine the appropriate amount trees should be
  • Always clear debris from around your home. Leaves and dead foliage should
    always be removed from gutters, porches, decks, and other outside areas.
    This also applies to dry, overgrown grass. These items make perfect fuel for
    a traveling fire.
  • Keep front, back, and side yard lawns properly hydrated.
  • Have an emergency plan set in place for your home. Important documents should be
    readily available in case of evacuation.
  • If you are a pet owner, have emergency
    supplies set and ready to go.
  • Any outdoor furniture or wooden gardening boxes
    should be moved away from your home, as far as possible.
  • Close all doors and
    windows to prevent embers from entering your home. Make sure garden hoses are all
    connected to a water source – they can be useful to firefighters.
  • Fix or replace broken roof tiles and cover exterior attic vents. This helps
  • Prevent ember penetration.
