Staying prepared in Fremont: Wildfires and the urban interface

Posted by gghertel on Oct 11 2017 - 7:30pm

The last time I co-taught the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge, we met at Gomes School on the picnic benches. During the intro, I asked all the youth to turn around and look at the hills and consider the following. I grew up in Fremont, and nearly every two years in the 1970s and early 1980s those hills caught on fire. Back then there weren’t more than a few houses south of Driscoll along Mission, and maybe a third of the houses we have today around the Kimber neighborhood. Hundreds more houses now exist along that interface, with more built up in the hills south of Ohlone as well, and we have had few fires in that time. Same can be said up and down the area, from Hayward on down to the rim of the Silicon Valley. We are at risk of wildfire here in Fremont. With Santa Rosa, Napa, and the dozen or so fires to our north, it’s a good time to think about what you might do if that happened here.
