Wildfire Preparedness

Safety during wildfires can depend largely on preparation, including having evacuation and communication plans in place and emergency preparedness kits for members of your household. Proper landscaping, construction planning, and keeping flammable materials away from your home also play important roles in preparedness. In the event of a wildfire, protect yourself and those around you from smoke especially those who have health risks. Monitor conditions and listen for and obey evacuation orders. After a wildfire evacuation, return only when given clearance. When cleaning up after a wildfire, be sure to follow health and safety practices.
