Stay tuned to your phone alerts, TV, or radio, for weather updates, emergency instructions or evacuation orders. Listen to local officials.
Learn your evacuation routes and plan to evacuate if advised by local authorities.
Prepare Your Home:
Regularly clean the roof and gutters.
Maintain an area approximately 30’ away from you home that is free of anything that will burn, such as wood piles, dried leaves, newspapers, and other brush.
Connect garden hoses long enough to reach any area of the home and fill garbage cans, tubs, or other large containers with water.
Review your homeowner's insurance policy and also prepare/update a list of your home's contents.
Basic Safety Tips:
If you see a wildfire and haven't received evacuation orders yet, call 9-1-1. Don't assume that someone else has already called.
If ordered to evacuate during a wildfire, do it immediately - make sure and tell someone where you are going and when you have arrived.
Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications. To find out what alerts are available in your area, search the Internet with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.”
If you or someone you are with has been burned, call 9-1-1 or seek help immediately; cool and cover burns to reduce chance of further injury or infection.
