In 2013 Medford Fire-Rescue became a Ready, Set, Go (RSG) Fire Department. The RSG Program works collaboratively with existing defensible space education tools, such as Firewise, and provides the tools for our firefighters to educate individuals on preparedness, situational awareness during a wildfire event, and to evacuate early for the safety of your family and responding firefighters. The Program stresses the following: 
  • Ready – Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildfire so your home is ready in case of a fire.  Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home.  Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures.  Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe spot.  Make sure all residents residing within the home are on the same page, plan escape routes.

  • Set – Act immediately.  Pack your vehicle with your emergency items.  Stay abreast of the latest news, both reported on news crews and your local fire department for updated information on the fire.
  • Go – Leave early!  Following your Action Plan makes you prepared at this step of the process.  Firefighters are now able to best maneuver the wildfire and ensuring you and your family’s safety.
