A spectacular family Christmas concert, “Carols by Candlelight” celebrates its 25th anniversary. Carols by Candlelight, in San Diego, was created in 1990 by Steve Vaus and Wayne Nelson, with the goal of making a life-changing difference in the lives of children. Originally a free concert at Horton Plaza, the event eventually outgrew that location, moving to the Poway Center for the Performing Arts and ultimately to its current home, the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. Net proceeds benefit Radys Children Hospital – San Diego.
Fired Up Sisters Southern CA is a group of women who lost their homes in October 2007 to a wildfire that burned over 1200 structures in the San Diego, California area. Soon after the fires occurred one of the fire survivors, Renee Van Heel, organized a women’s support group to help other survivors connect and support each other through the maze of insurance, rebuilding, and personal programs that occur with disaster.
The founding focus of the group was to facilitate emotional and financial recovery for 2007 Wildfire families. The current mission is to “pay forward” the community assistance received to other natural disaster survivors. Fired Up Sisters Southern CA does this through:
• Staying connected to each other, community leaders, charitable foundations, and donation organizations, so that we can quickly respond to the next event.
• Seeking out geographically local survivors, inviting them to the group and sharing experiences and resources.
• Sharing a recipe for recovery with other communities, with support, and a handbook outlining our path.
“The 2007 Firestorm changed our lives, brought us together, and strengthened our resolve. It is our goal to turn life’s lemons into something sweet.”
In January of 2011, the Peñasquitos Emergency Response Council began meetings with neighborhood stakeholders aimed towards the goal of developing a Community Emergency Response Plan to coordinate the efforts of existing City and County of San Diego Emergency Planning Groups, National and International Emergency Support Organizations, local businesses, community residents and other local volunteers in the event of an actual catastrophic event or emergency. The stated purpose of the Council was not to replace any group or existing plan, but to coordinate all efforts in order to provide the greatest sense of community and security possible for all who live and work in the Plan area. We realize that in the strength of our friends and neighbors, we all stand the best chance of surviving a major event. With that in mind, The Council has evolved into an educational platform aimed at increasing awareness of potential disasters and ideas to prepare individuals and families in case of a disaster. PERC has sponsored monthly classes, a local Preparedness Fair, and other local activities to help make our community aware and prepared.
The Poway Neighborhood Emergency Corps is committed to providing support for all neighborhoods throughout the city when an emergency occurs. We are volunteers from throughout the community who want to help you be prepared for any emergency.
The Rancho Bernardo Fire Safe Council is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the greater Rancho Bernardo area a safer place in the event of wildfires. It was established following the 2007 Witch Creek/Guejito Wildfires, which destroyed over 350 homes in Rancho Bernardo and almost 1,100 homes countywide. The RB Fire Safe Council is a program of RB United, a member of the San Diego County Fire Safe Council, and a collaborative partner of the Lake Hodges Fire Safe Council. The mission of the Fire Safe Council of Rancho Bernardo is three-fold: (a) promotion of the preparation and education of the public on wildfire safety, (b) protection and preservation of homes and natural resources from fire damage, and (c) coordination and mobilization of the activities, resources and organizations that mitigate fire risk.
RB United works to meet the needs of the Rancho Bernardo and I-15 Inland Corridor communities. We are committed to building a community that communicates well, shares resources in an intelligent manner, and works together for the benefit of all. Our “Be Prepared, Not Scared” disaster preparedness classes provide vital education to Access and Functional Needs residents. We organize neighborhood emergency coordination teams in the North County Inland area, ensuring resources will be ready to mobilize in the event of a disaster.
