Upcoming Community Events and Causes
Fire Season Is Here
Everyone in California is hoping this year’s fire season is less destructive than last year, when wild fires lit up all over the state, including our Santa Cruz Mountains, where the Loma Prieta Fire destroyed homes and property. To get ready for this year’s fire season, we talked to one of the volunteer firefighters who helped put out the Loma Prieta blaze, Alex Leman. Alex has a few tips for how we can protect our homes this year and you can check out these helpful websites, www.preventwildfireca.org and www.lomaprietafire.org.
Special Olympics Torch Run
Every June, the South Bay’s Law Enforcement community gathers to support disabled young people as they run carrying the Special Olympics Torch to the Special Olympics Games in Davis. Volunteers from all walks of life show up to cheer on these young athletes as the Torch passes through San Jose. Hear from some of the volunteers on their devotion to helping Special Olympics youth.
