Utility Wildfire Safety

Unlike most municipalities, the City of Healdsburg operates its own electric utility, and the community benefits from lower electric rates compared with PG&E. Go here to learn what the City's Electric Department is doing to prepare for disasters such as wildfires, and what you should do prepare you and your family for public-safety power shutdowns.

Emergency Preparedness Brochure

The City of Healdsburg has developed a multi-page English- and Spanish-language emergency-preparedness for the community. Created by the City Manager’s Office and the Fire and Police Departments, the brochure includes best practices on how you can prepare for disasters such as wildfires, and floods.

Topics include building a family emergency kit (including pets), developing an emergency-communications plan, making your property more fire-resistant through vegetation management, and helpful resources from FEMA, Fire Safe Sonoma, and the American Red Cross.The brochure also features two maps – one for Healdsburg and one for Fitch Mountain – that provide travel-route options when evacuation is necessary.

The overriding message of this resource: Prepare for a disaster now. Do you and your family have a communications plan in case you get separated? Have you digitized important documents? Do you have an emergency “go-bag” ready with necessities such as clothing, medication, and food? What’s your pet emergency plan? Don’t wait until a disaster strikes before you start planning.
