Preparedness

Being prepared for wildfire, or any disaster, is your best defense against losing your home.

- The FIRST thing all residents can do is to sign up for "CodeRed" - Amador County Sheriff emergency alert system.  We suggest signing up all the phones you have, including cell phones, to alert you in the event of an evacuation or any other emergency situation.

Can we find you?  Every year, hundreds of emergency responses are delayed due to the hard to see address markings that make it difficult for Police, Fire and EMS Crews to respond. To provide our first responders the ability to provide the services you need, send us an e-mail and we will send you all the information on obtianing a reflective sign directly from Lockwood Fire.  We order, make and install the reflective signs.  The signs will pop up if a snow plow or other vehicle runs over them. 

Send us an e-mail  (redacted)  If we can't find you, we can't help you.

Sign up for our e-mail list.  We often send out info on preparing as well as our events.  Simply e-mail us at: (redacted) and include your name, address, phone, e-mail.
