Fire Season Arrives In California With Summer

Fire Season Arrives In California With Summer

Fire Season Arrives In California With Summer

Summer is here, and for most people this means it’s time for parties, vacations, and trips. Everyone has their own to enjoy summer. While the season is great for relaxing, one aspect of this time of year can be incredibly stressful. As the temperatures rise in California, wildfires become more prominent across the state.

Wildfires are incredibly dangerous, and become more threatening in warm, dry, and windy conditions. During the summer, California dries out under the intense heat, thereby increasing the risks of wildfires. All it takes is one small spark to ignite a massive blaze that can burn through everything in its path.

Just looking at how bad last year’s wildfires were, it is easy to see how important it is for a person to be prepared for wildfires. This is especially true during the summer months.

Prepping A Home For Wildfires

A person can prepare for in a number of ways from prepping their home for a fire, and preparing their family on how to respond to a potential danger. Both ways are very important, and preparing in both areas can make a huge difference. Preparation can mean the difference between life and death.

When it comes to defending a house, homeowners should create defendable space between their home and the rest of the yard. This means creating ten feet of clearance between a home and any vegetation. It also means removing dead vegetation, leaves and branches, from the yard. Dead plant material is more flammable than living plants, and can pose a higher risk of catching fire. Dead leaves should also be removed from rain gutters and out from under porches.

Keep lawns maintained and watered as dry grass can be incredibly flammable. Mow lawns in the morning when they are damp with dew. This makes it less likely that a spark from the mower could start a fire.

Place metal netting over ducts, eaves, and under patios to prevent embers and dry debris from getting inside. Replace missing or broken roof tiles regularly to prevent embers from reaching the wooden roofing beneath the tiles.

Keeping The Family Prepared

When it comes to prepping the family for emergencies, a lot of it falls to storing emergency supplies, creating a plan, and practicing the plan. Experts recommend having at least two emergency exit plans for every room in a building. Every person in a family should know these plans, as well as where to meet in the event of separation. Practicing these plans regularly can help a person memorize, which means they will be less likely to panic and forget them in the event of an emergency.

Emergency supplies should be stored in a safe, yet easily, accessible area that every family knows about. When it comes to wildfire prep, an emergency kit should contain any current medications needed by each family member, including pets. Important documents, such as birth certificates, deeds, and insurance paperwork, should be kept in a safe, fireproof area. Fireproof safes are great, but they are not perfect. The safe itself may not burn, but sometimes the papers inside can still ignite if temperatures get hot enough.

Stay Safe & Prepared This Summer

In the event of a wildfire, always follow the advice of emergency personnel. They know best. If told to evacuate by firefighters or police officers, people should listen. If they don’t, they could become trapped in their home. This is bad for two reasons:

  1. No one wants to be trapped anywhere near a wildfire. Emergency crews may attempt a rescue, but there is no guarantee they will get there in time.
  2. Emergency personnel will need to be diverted from fighting the blaze to attempt to rescue the trapped individual(s). That means less people fighting the fire, which is bad for everyone.

Wildfires are incredibly dangerous, and can be very scary when they approach a person’s home. Unfortunately, they are just a part of life in California during the summer and fall. Luckily, there are steps a person can take to help protect their homes and ensure the safety of their families.

What are some of the ways that you have prepared your home for wildfires?

Let us know in the comments down below.

 

Is It Possible To Steal Something That Was Delivered To You?

Is It Possible To Steal Something That Was Delivered To You?

Is It Possible To Steal Something That Was Delivered To You?

Most people are aware of the fact that stealing is wrong. They know that if they take something that isn’t theirs without permission, they could end up in big legal trouble. That is something nobody wants to deal with, which is why most people don’t take stuff that doesn’t belong to them.

However, what should people do when things sort of just fall into their laps? In today’s modern world, packages arrive at peoples’ homes all of the time. Most of the time these packages are delivered properly, but sometimes packages get delivered to the wrong address or the wrong thing was shipped to the person. In these instances, what should a person do? Do they try to return it or keep it as a nice gift? After all, the company messed up, not the person ordering the item, right?

As it turns out, the answer isn’t so simple. This is still relatively new territory as far as the law is concerned, and one Massachusetts man learned this the hard way.

How The Story Goes

A Massachusetts man recently made headlines for being arrested for stealing a TV that was mistakenly delivered to his house. He had recently ordered a 75-inch flat screen TV valued at around $1,200. What was delivered instead was an 86-inch flat screen valued at double the price, around $2,700. The man kept the mistaken delivery, accepting it as a bit of good luck. He even did a quick internet search to see if he could get into trouble for keeping the TV.

On the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) website, he found what he thought was the answer he was looking for. The site stated that if a person receives merchandise they didn’t order, they have a legal right to keep it. The man took this to mean that he could keep the TV. However, this particular line was talking about instances where companies try to send people unordered products for free, then demand payment for said products.

The delivery company soon realized its mistake and began to try and contact the man. However, the man never felt any obligation to answer those calls. According to the delivery company, the calls were either ignored or answered by a male voice claiming to be the father of the man in question, who promised to pass the news along to his son.

After a few days of getting nowhere with this, the delivery company contacted the police and filled them in on the situation. A pair of police officers were sent to the home where they met the man in the driveway. They spoke to him about the TV, which one of the officers could see mounted on the wall through a front window. The man denied being home to receive the package when it arrived, despite that the delivery man was able to identify him from a photo lineup. The man stated that one of his employees must have signed for it. He asked to see the signature on the delivery slip, and claimed that it wasn’t his.

The officers left and later got a warrant to arrest the man. As the police sought a warrant, one officer stated that the man clearly lied and refused to answer his telephone, and would likely lie about receiving a summon and will not show up for court. Shortly after, a group of officers surrounded the house and arrested the man. They charged him with felony larceny by false pretense and a second charge of misleading a police. The man was released from jail shortly after and is currently looking for a defense lawyer. If found guilty, the man will face up to 15 years in prison and several thousands of dollars in fines and legal fees.

What Happens Next?

When it comes down to who was right and wrong in this case, no one is quite sure. As stated earlier, this case is rather unique and unheard of. One criminal defense lawyer, who has worked with law for 20 years, argues that larceny in Massachusetts requires the actual taking of property, which didn’t technically occur in this scenario. Another lawyer says that the large price of the item probably necessitated that the man report the incident to the company.

For those looking to avoid a similar situation, it is always best to contact the delivery company or sender of the package to alert them of the error. Depending on the item, some companies have been known to let the error stand, chalking it up to their own mistake. Once that is done, the person should try to help them out wherever possible that way a person cannot be accused of stealing something that was delivered to them.

What do you think of this?

Should the man have tried to return the TV or was he right to keep it for himself? Let us know what you think in the comments down below.

Can Minors Drink in California?

Can Minors Drink in California?

Can Minors Drink in California?

As holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s roll around, there are plenty of parties to attend. Families get together to catch up and reflect on the passing year. These parties are full of fun, and typically, full of drinking. As long as there is no driving after the drinking, this is no problem for adults. After all, they can drink whenever they like.

However, problems can arise when the kids, especially teens, see all of the adults drinking. The fact that teens want to grow up sooner rather than later is no secret. One of their favorite requests is to join their parents and other adult relatives in drinking.

Some parents are fine with this request. They see no problem with it since the teen is in a safe and controlled environment surrounded by trusted adults. However, this is a problem in the State of California. If a parent or guardian is not careful, they could wind up in trouble with the law.

The Law In California

Here in California, and the rest of the United States, the legal age for a person to begin consuming alcohol is 21. Anyone under the age of 21 who consumes alcohol is breaking the law. The state of California makes it a crime to give or sell alcohol to a minor with Business and Professions Code 25658.

Under Business and Professions Code 25658, selling or furnishing alcohol to a minor is a misdemeanor offense. The law can apply to anyone who gives alcohol to a minor, or any minor who gets access to alcohol through the use of a fake ID.

What many people do not realize, is that this law applies to anyone who gives alcohol to a minor. This includes parents or guardians of the minor in question. If a minor is found to have a blood alcohol concentration of (BAC) 0.05% or greater, then the parent could face misdemeanor charges.

The Penalties

In California, parents who are found guilty of providing their child, who is a minor, with alcohol face misdemeanor charges. This means that they can face:

  • Up to 1 year in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.
  • Some combination of fine and jail time.

These penalties are just slightly better than what a random person would face for breaking Business and Professions Code 25658. In addition to the above penalties, a person breaking this law would also be required to complete at least 24 hours of community service. If the person knowingly sold alcohol to a minor they, or the business, can lose their license to sell alcohol.

If someone under the age of 21 purchases or consumes alcohol on their own, they will face:

  • A $250 fine.
  • 24 to 32 hours of community service.
  • A 1 year suspension of their driver’s license, or a 1 year delay on being able to obtain their license.

Subsequent offenses lead to increased penalties for the minor in question.

Keep The Holidays Safe

While kids, especially teens, are always excited to grow up in a hurry, there are some things that should wait. Consuming alcohol is definitely one of those things. Not only is it not a great idea to allow a minor to consume alcohol, it can also get an adult into legal trouble. Even if the adult in question is the parent or guardian.

If a person wants to stay out of trouble this holiday season, then they need to drink responsibly. This means knowing their limits, having a designated driver (DD), and not allowing minors to consume alcohol. So long as a person does that, they can close out the year with loved ones and not behind bars.
