On everyone’s mind these days are the fires raging in California.

As we all know so well, Topanga is not immune.

TASC urges you to have a plan. Keep valuable papers,

prescriptions and any other items that are indespensible

ready to be loaded for immediate evacuation.

Have carriers for your pets.

Have a meeting place outside the canyon for your family.

Issues relating to the west coast fires include global warming,

forest maintenance, urban sprawl and public awareness.

We encourage you to read as much as you can about these issues.
