Clean roofs and gutters of dead leaves, debris and pine needles that could catch embers

Enclose under-eaves and soffit vents or screen with metal mesh to prevent ember entry

 

SET – “Be Prepared” “Be Alert” (Fire has started and is becoming a concern and could likely lead to evacuations)

Monitor fire weather conditions and fire status https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/ 

Consider evacuation if you have pets, livestock, or anyone who may require extra time

IF YOU FEEL YOUR LIFE IS IN DANGER LEAVE! DON’T WAIT!

Alert family and neighbors

Ensure Emergency Supply Kit is ready to go (battery powered radio, spare batteries, drinking water, etc.)

Remain close to your house, ensure accountability of family and pets

 

Inside checklist if time allows

Close all windows and doors, leaving them unlocked

Remove all shades and curtains from windows

Move furniture to the center of the room, away from windows and doors

Turn off pilot lights and air conditioning

Leave your lights on so firefighters can see your house under smoky conditions

 

       Outside checklist if time allows

Bring combustible items from the exterior of the house inside (e.g., patio furniture, children’s toys, door mats, etc.) 

Turn off propane tanks and other gas at the meter

Leave exterior lights on 

Move flammable material away from the wall exteriors of home – mulch, flammable plants, leaves and needles, firewood piles, outdoor furniture – anything that can burn

 

GO! – “ACT EARLY” (Evacuations have been put in place)

 By leaving early you give your family the best chance of surviving a wildland fire. You also help firefighters by keeping roads clear of congestion, and avoid dangerous low visibility with heavy smoke. Flying embers and Spot fires can happen up to a mile ahead of the flame front with high winds. 

 

WHEN TO LEAVE

Do not wait to be advised to leave if there is a possible threat to your home or evacuation route. Leave early to avoid being caught in fire, smoke or road congestion. Don’t wait to be told by authorities to leave. IF YOU FEEL YOUR LIFE IS IN DANGER LEAVE! DON’T WAIT! If you are advised to leave, don’t hesitate!

 

WHERE TO GO

Leave to a predetermined location- to a low risk area

 

HOW TO GET THERE

Choose the safest route away from the fire. Have several travel routes in case one route is blocked by the fire or emergency vehicles. Stay informed on current road status, closures and hazards

 

WHAT TO TAKE

Take your emergency supply kit containing your family and pet’s medications and necessary items


EVACUATION PLANNING & KITS

It is important to make sure that your entire family is prepared and informed in the event of a disaster or emergency. You may not always be together when these events take place and should have plans for making sure you are able to contact and find one another. The American Red Cross suggests meeting with your family or household members to discuss how to prepare and respond to emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live, learn, work and play. For more detailed information on creating a disaster preparedness plan visit The Red Cross website.

Being prepared means being equipped with the proper supplies you may need in the event of an emergency or disaster. Keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency preparedness kit that you can use at home or take with you in case you must evacuate.

At a minimum, you should have the basic supplies listed below:

Water—one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)

Food—non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)

Flashlight

Battery-powered or hand-crank radio

Extra batteries

First aid kit

Medications (7-day supply) and medical items

Multi-purpose tool

Sanitation and personal hygiene items

Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)

Cell phone with chargers

Family and emergency contact information

Extra cash

Emergency blanket
