(Phoenix, AZ) The unusually dry winter and warm temperatures could bring an early start to Arizona’s wildfire season, and the Arizona Sheriff’s Association wants you to be prepared.The fifteen Arizona Sheriff’s have adopted Ready, Set, Go!, a program that educates residents about proactive measures to take before an emergency and actions to follow when communities are threatened. The program’s three tenets encourage Arizonans to get READY by preparing now for what threatens their community, be SET by maintaining awareness of significant danger and to GO, evacuate immediately when the danger is current and life-threatening.
“We’re excited and proud to implement the Ready, Set, Go! program for all-hazards across the state,” said Arizona Sheriff’s Association President Mark J. Dannels. “Our primary goal is to keep Arizonans safe and we believe the message of preparing early and being set to evacuate at a moment’s notice will help us achieve that goal."
