With the next disaster in Big Sur. What would you do differently?
* Would you evacuate so quickly? Would you hire help to defend your property? * Would we buy more bulldozers to create our own fire lines on our properties? * Will you buy and keep gel around to protect your home?

How are you going to prepare for the next disaster? Here's your opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas on this. Also, GO VOTE on our poll here to say whether you think you will stay to defend your property the next time around.
Your votes really counted on the Supplying Supplies to those who did not evacuate. Kudos to all those who voted.
Sam Farr was at the last Big Sur meeting and had this to share:
Lessons: we can do a way better job of mapping, we need local people to stay in and work as emergency personnel in this situation. Let’s really take the lessons learned. Make a note now, while it’s still fresh, of the things you think we could better do to prepare ourselves in the future. We can be a model for how other communities do it. Let’s turn this into a learning lesson and asset for all of us.
Also read the article written by Kenny in the Salinas Californian today. Thanks for having a backbone Kenny!
