Business & Community Resources
City of Vista Junior Deputy Program
The Vista Sheriff Department’s Junior Deputy Academy is a 12-week character-building program for youth between 10 and 16 years. The Academy is free and taught by Vista Sheriff deputies in collaboration with the City of Vista. The Academy is offered for free but is limited to youth who live in Vista. Learn more here.
Lower Energy Bills for Businesses
Higher summer temperatures can mean higher energy bills and cause an extraordinary strain on the electrical grid. This can lead to a greater risk of grid emergencies and power outages. But it doesn’t have to be this way. During a grid emergency, businesses in SDG&E’s service territory can participate in the Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP). Learn more here.
Prepare for Wildfires Before One Ignites to Protect Your Family, Friends and Property
With the deadly firestorm in Maui and the Bunnie Fire in Ramona that scorched nearly 200 acres and resulted in evacuations Wednesday, wildfires are at the top of mind for most of San Diegans. The fires should remind people to be prepared to evacuate and to take steps to minimize damage to their property in case a wildfire starts in their community. Read more here.
