Fire season is fast approaching and while training areas are at the highest risk for fires, areas of the base with overgrown vegetation are also at risk during dry spells of weather.
Every year, Camp Pendleton firefighters extinguish nearly 300 wildfires on base. Last year, more than 24,062 acres of land burned which is twice more than the acreage burned in 2013. 
In our Always Prepared series, we give information on wildfires that occur on base and what you can do to mitigate the damage caused by them. 
Week One of our Always Prepared series focuses on Evacuation Plans, Evacuation Centers and Emergency Preparedness Kits.
