Ad Hoc Wildfire Preparedness Committee
Given the inherent risk of wildfire in Portola Valley and the changing character of wildfires due to climate change, the Town Council has formed a new ad hoc committee on wildfire preparedness in order to advise the Council, on a limited duration basis, on ways to reduce wildfire danger, and increase resident resiliency in a wildfire emergency.
The committee is began meeting in early June, and will have an accelerated schedule to allow for short-term wildfire preparedness recommendations to reach the Council later this summer.
