Create a Plan
Having a wildfire plan is one of the most basic steps towards being better prepared – READY – for any future wildfire.
The Wildfire Plan
Every plan is unique, because every home and family is unique. Your plan must be applicable to your family – how many kids, if any? Pets? Family members with mobility or health challenges? All of these things need to be taken into account as you create your plan. Once you’ve done so, share the plan with family members – and perhaps trusted out of town relatives. Make sure you conduct a “family wildfire plan” review at least once a year.
