Los Angeles, CA, April 28, 2014 --(PR.com)-- California is experiencing the worst drought it has seen since the start of drought monitoring in the year 2000 and the drought affects about 67% of the state. The latest reports indicate that conditions will only get worse as the year progresses.

Many state fire agencies are warning residents in high fire danger areas to brace for an extremely hostile wildland fire season. Drought and high fuel load is a recipe for disaster prompting aggressive planning for a major wildland incident or multiple incidents.

With limited resources and staffing throughout the state of California, many residents and homeowners associations in high fire danger areas are now contracting private fire services for structure protection in the event of a wildland fire incident. With so few companies, Golden State FIRE EMS has seen a flurry of inquiries from high net worth residents and major insurance companies.

The goal is to protect as many structures as possible during a major wildland fire incident and for many agencies, resources can be scarce prompting residents to fend for themselves and putting themselves in harms way. Private fire brigades can minimize injuries or perhaps death by allowing residents to evacuate knowing their homes and property is being protected.

Private fire services can save homes and property making them a viable option for homeowners who live in high fire danger areas. Private fire services could potentially save the state money and allow municipal fire departments to focus on the most critical areas of a fire instead of being spread too thin.
