The reality is that there will never be enough firefighters, engines, or trucks to defend every home in a major wildfire. It’s up to you to take responsibility for protecting your family, your home, and your community.
Emergency Supply Kit and To-Go Bag
Your emergency supply kit should contain enough supplies and belongings for every member of your household for at least 3 days. Your to-go bag holds items needed to help you evacuate quickly and safely.
Family Disaster Plan
A family disaster plan is only useful if it’s completed well before a wildfire occurs. Your plan should address the needs of every member of your family or household, including pets.
Preplanned Escape Routes
An escape route is a preplanned route designed to help your family get to a safe area during a wildfire. It’s important to map out several in case roads are blocked or unsafe for travel.
