AlertSCC Focused Test - Friday, August 30 at 10:00 a.m.
Santa Clara County Fire Department will be conducting a focused test of the AlertSCC system on Friday, August 30th at 10:00 a.m.
With Santa Clara County residents heading to enjoy the Labor Day weekend, many people will be enjoying outdoor recreation in areas susceptible to wildfires. SCCFD will be testing the AlertSCC system and using this opportunity to remind residents of steps they can take to be fire safe.
“Nearly every community served by Santa Clara County Fire Department is at risk for wildfire and needs to be prepared,” said Tony Bowden, SCCFD Fire Chief. “They can do this by registering for AlertSCC (www.alertscc.com) and visiting our website www.sccfd.org/rsg for wildfire preparedness tips.”

It's Not Worth It. Fireworks Can Cause Dangerous Fires.
While celebrating the Fourth of July holiday, Santa Clara County Fire Department reminds residents to leave fireworks to the professionals.
All fireworks are illegal in Santa Clara County and can result in fires and injuries that are easily preventable. Residents can incur fines for using, possessing, storing or selling illegal fireworks. Santa Clara County's 'social host' Fireworks Ordinance holds property owners responsible for illegal use of fireworks on their property.
This year, Santa Clara County has experienced a significant grass crop that has dried and makes our hillside communities, parks and open spaces susceptible to fires. One spark from a firework could have disastrous consequences. The National Fire Protection Association reports that fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires per year, including 1,300 structure fires, 300 vehicle fires, and 16,900 outside and other fires. These fires cause an average of three deaths, 40 civilian injuries, and an average of $43 million in direct property damage.
Remember, when it comes to fireworks, it's not worth it. Keep your family and neighborhood safe, attend one of the many community fireworks displays throughout the county and enjoy a happy Fourth of July!Learn More
