The Almeda Fire was a traumatic event that destroyed lives, homes, and businesses and left our valley shaken. Lessons learned from the Almeda Fire will help shape the City’s response to emergencies in the future and better define areas of vulnerability. It is not enough to know what did not work as expected; this event must become a springboard to creating a more resilient community that can withstand and recover more quickly from disaster by implementing operational, structural, and policy changes.
As a result, the Ashland City Council will hold an Almeda Wildfire Forum on Wednesday, March 10 at 6 p.m. via Zoom. The forum will include highlights from the Community Survey conducted after the Almeda Fire, a live Q&A with the City Council and staff, top takeaways on what the City is doing to improve our emergency response, and action steps you can take to be ready for fire season.
