Wildfire

What is a wildfire?

A wildfire is a fast-spreading, uncontrolled fire that affects vegetation like forests, grasslands, or brush. It is fueled by dry conditions, strong winds, and flammable materials.

Preparedness

Prepare yourself to minimize the impact of wildfires by creating a defensible space around your property. Remove debris, dry vegetation, and flammable materials.

Evacuation Plan

During a wildfire or evacuation order, ensure you have a well-defined evacuation plan. Identify multiple evacuation routes and establish a meeting place outside the affected area.

Safety Measures

Prioritize your safety with these measures: Stay indoors, keeping windows and doors closed, to minimize smoke exposure. If evacuation is not feasible, find shelter in a spacious, open area devoid of vegetation.

Stay Informed

Stay informed about wildfire updates through reliable sources like local fire departments, emergency management agencies, and official social media channels.
