Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - With the first Santa Ana winds of the season forecast, several fire departments in San Diego County will hold open houses Saturday at their stations to kick off Fire Prevention Week.

The National Weather Service is calling for warm weather and occasionally gusty northeast winds over the weekend and again for Wednesday and Thursday.

The open houses will be in Lakeside, La Mesa, Carlsbad and San Marcos. Other departments will conduct open houses one week from Saturday.

A community meeting is also scheduled in Rancho Penasquitos to discuss fire preparation. San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Chief Javier Mainar, San Diego police Assistant Chief Boyd Long and Councilwoman Sherri Lightner are scheduled to provide information.

Among the topics will be the Rancho Penasquitos Fire Safe Council's Home Assessment Program, how residents can best work with police and fire officials on preventing and preparing for wildfires, canyon and open space brush management, and community response in case of an emergency.
