WILD FIRE ARCHIVE - FALL 2011 > Learn ways you can prepare your home and family for a wildfire


5 Sep 2011

READY, SET, GO! 

READY. Prepare for the possibility of a wildland fire before the threat occurs. Take preventive actions to make your home safer from the threat of wildfire by using Firewise and similar principles (firewise.org).

- Remove combustible materials from around your home. Keep grass mowed short.

SET. Elevate your family’s awareness when fire weather occurs or when wildland fire activity increases. Form a family disaster plan.

- Agree on an evacuation plan that includes what to do if you get separated and where you’ll go in case of evacuation.

- Pack critical medicines, important documents, family heirlooms to be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.

GO. This is the simplest step: Execute your disaster plan by leaving early, well before the fire arrives.

- If instructed to evacuate, do so! Your “stuff” isn’t more important than your LIFE.
