Renee O'Neill and Linda Tunnell were ready for the Alamo Fire when it came to Tepusquet Canyon last year. They head the Fire Associates for the Community of Tepusquet (FACT), a community coalition that educates about fire safety and preparedness in the canyon. They follow advice laid down by the Santa Barbara County Fire Safe Council, which O'Neill is a liaison to for FACT. Their homes are surrounded by defensible space and equipped with sprinklers, and they have a sophisticated response plan to evacuate and leave their land ready for first responders.
