As with other counties in CA, Riverside County knows all too well about wildfires and the damages they can do. Private and municipal fire protection tanks are vital to reduce the risk of total loss.

Today it has become extremely important that private citizens join forces with the local, county, and state government to reduce the impacts of wildfires. Using wildfire preparedness plans is the best way to do this.

The Cranston Fire that burned on the Southside of Riverside County in 2018 was a result of arson. It burned 13,139 acres and over 7,000 residents were evacuated.

In 2019, Riverside County was again hit. The Tenaja Fire caused 1,200 residents to evacuate, injured one firefighter, and burned 1,926 acres. This was caused by a lightning strike.

In 2020 there were two fires that hit Riverside County. The El Dorado fire burned 22,744 acres, destroyed 10 structures, and damaged six structures.

The other fire in 2020, the Apple fire burned 33,424 acres.

Those were the latest fires in the past four years. Riverside County can expect more wildfires. That is why it is so important that everyone work together to do wildfire preparedness plans and reduce the possibilities of more frequent fires.

Riverside County has a desert climate in the central and eastern portions with a Mediterranean climate in the western portion. The 2020 census has the population at 2,189,641.

Steel Bolted or Poly Tanks Available for Fire protection in Santa Clara County

There are steel bolted or poly tanks (plastic) available for fire protection in Riverside County. The main difference between the two is the capacity size. The steel bolted tanks hold more starting at around 4,000 gallons and going up to around two million gallons. The poly tanks hold between 400 gallons and 1,500 gallons.

Most often larger commercial properties will use steel bolted tanks because they have more structures, equipment, and ground to protect from fire. They need the larger capacity to cover everything.

Residential and small businesses will do fine with a poly tank. There are fewer structures, equipment, and property to cover in a residential setting.

However, in some instances a combination of steel bolted and poly tanks will work for you. It depends on how far spread out your structures, equipment, and other property is from each other.

The benefits of a fire protection tank include:

Every citizen must join in with fire preparedness in order to reduce the number of devastating fires. That begins with preparedness and following the plan.
