Ready -- Set -- Go
Is your home fire-safe? Hardening your home is an important first step. There are many simple and inexpensive things you can do to lower your risk of a fire.
- Create 100 feet of defensible space around your home. Remove dry and/or dead vegetation from around your home.
- Remove piles of lumber and debris to allow better firefighter access and lessen fire damage.
- Remove dead leaves and needles from your roof and gutters.
- Review your insurance policies and take photos on your smartphone or video camera to document your belongings. Keep the video/photos outside the home.
- Create a Wildfire Action Plan that ensures all members of your family understand, especially in more rural areas.
- Put together an emergency supply kit. Include batteries, flashlights, prescriptions, water, and more.
- Have a family communication plan. All members of your family should know where to go if your family is evacuated.
- When you are asked to evacuate – don’t hesitate. Your life and the lives of first responders are put at greater risk when evacuation instructions are not followed.
