November 8th 2018 at 2pm “The Woolsey Fire” impacted the lives of thousands of people..
Thursday November 8 was a busy day in California. Just before midnight the night before there was a mass shooting incident leaving 12 dead at a bar in Thousand Oaks, just west of where the fire was hours later. The Camp Fire started early Thursday morning wiping out much of Paradise in northern California before noon. Then the Hill Fire started at about 1 p.m. south of Thousand Oaks about 13 miles southwest of where the Woolsey Fire started an hour later. The Hill Fire eventually burned over 4,500 acres and required the evacuation of 17,000 residents. While firefighters were still initially responding to the Hill Fire the Woolsey Fire ignited at about 2 p.m. Strike teams of engines and crews were already en route to northern California, so right away there was competition for firefighting resources with three major fires burning simultaneously in the state.
The Woolsey Fire started in Ventura County but spread into Los Angeles County. Very large portions of the blaze were in both counties, testing the capabilities of LA City, LA County, and the Ventura County Fire Department. The report states that even though the three organizations “regularly plan for and practice their response to a large fire in the region, they could not have planned for a complete exhaustion of California’s limited firefighting resources brought on by a regional wildfire weather threat in conjunction with the Camp Fire, a mass casualty shooting in Ventura County, and the Ventura County Hill Fire, which began just before the Woolsey Fire started.”
With large numbers of firefighting resources committed to the three major fires, and with the dry, windy weather continuing, many agencies had to think hard about continuing to send more and more firefighters to the Hill and Woolsey Fires in case more incidents broke out. Approximately half the resource orders for the Woolsey Fire were UTF, Unable to Fill.

Prepare for the unexpected
The CERT training by Los Angeles Fire Department taught us that people are just not prepared for an emergency.
When your why is stronger than, you find a way. The steps you take today can save your home and property.
Ask a quality question, you get a quality answer.
Did you know you are allowed to use the fire hydrant in the event of a catastrophic event?
If the last year taught us anything, we’ve renewed our focus on disaster preparedness, in particular, ensuring be prepared for unexpected fire and earthquake in the face of sudden, unplanned disruptions.
Unfortunately, a global health menace represents just one un-expected hazard to our daily operations and stability. Statistically, there are many far more common causes of potential downtime that can disrupt our lives.
- Natural disasters, often seasonal forces of nature that pose a significant threat to property, human safety or critical infrastructure, such hurricanes, tornadoes, winter storms, flooding, wildfires and earthquakes.
- Utility failures, which include electricity or power failure, loss of internet/telecommunication lines, and other utilities.
- User error, such as falling for cyberattacks, phishing and other social engineering schemes, practicing poor password hygiene, and the mishandling and/or errant sending of sensitive data.
- Malicious users, disgruntled neighbors, current and former employees with an axe to grind.
Knowing and planning for these varied continuity threats will bring you certainty that you can take action in the event of a unexpected event.
Planning as Prevention
No matter the cause of an unplanned business interruption, one of the most effective methods of bouncing back is preparing and following a well-conceived, oft-reviewed business continuity plan. In a nutshell, this vital document formalizes your company’s IT policies, procedures and precautions to minimize downtime in the event of an unforeseen calamity.
Tailored Planning is Ideal
Since no two homeowners’ needs or situation are exactly alike, organizing community meetings with continuity planning requires a customized approach:
- The most likely current and future threats to your home and property.
- The process, technologies and tools needed to protect the front and back of your home simultaneously.
- Steps and processes to assure that your current equipment remains operational and usable, while minimizing human and local factors that might impact continuity.

Yours in deep thanks and gratitude, Sherwin Ace Ross CEO Ace Fire Preparedness and Prevention.
Its your choice while waiting for the fire department to show up what would you do? 1- Would you feel confident while waiting for the fire department that you are ready to take action with the proper tools stored properly on your porch to jump into state and fight the fire with certainty? Or would you feel confident and wait for the fire department being unprepared?
You drive where you focus.
You are permitted to use a fire hydrant, a pool pump to battle the task at hand in the event of fire approaching you. The task at hand is to fight the embers that are approaching.
It is our outcome and mission to serve the community in creating awareness for fire preparedness and fire prevention. “An Ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Ben Franklin

In Biblical terms, fire reveals the power of God in a number ways. However, it frequently appears in the Bible as a symbol of God’s anger and judgement and destruction. The dream of fire generally has impact on the dreamer as it consumes, warn, and illuminates, but can also bring pain and death.
In the event of a fire, I choose to be prepared.
This video was taken on November 9, 2018. We were surrounded by fire. At 12:00 midnight the winds abruptly halted. Everything got quite. This was a Devine intervention. We were ready to evacuate and were not prepared. Yaniv Shlomo owns two 300 gallon water tanks, bless this mas heart. Yaniv and Sherwin stayed out till 5:00 am putting out hot spots that could have re ignited and taken out our homes.
My promise is to deliver an outstanding product at the very best price possible. This “kit” is a must for every home that is is in a fire zone. End of Story.
