Community Meeting at Poway City Council Chambers to Address Home Owners Insurance in Fire Zones

Homeowner’s insurance in a fire zone will be discussed at the Poway City Council Chambers at 7 pm Thursday, Nov. 14. Sponsored by the Poway Neighborhood Emergency Corps (PNEC), the meeting will address questions regarding insurance renewal or cancellation due to living in a Fire Zone. Insurance options that people may not have considered will be discussed at the meeting, even if they have received an insurance non renewal notice.

Home Fire Escape Plan Contest

Does EVERYONE in your family know how to get out of your home if it is on fire?

Sadly, two thirds of American households have not planned and practiced a home fire escape plan; leading to a tragic statistic:  seven people die each day in home fires in our country.

To draw attention to this issue  and  to work to prevent this tragedy from happening in San Diego, beginning today and through September 29, the Fire Foundation is sponsoring a contest to encourage San Diegans to develop and practice their own Home  Escape Plan.

Two $500 awards will be presented during Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12)

All families in San Diego County are encouraged to create a home fire escape plan…and the Fire Foundation contest winners will get rewarded for it, too!  Contest rules and instructions are available on our website:  www.sdfirefoundation.org.
