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.

Key Plan Components

Sometimes, it’s important to have easily remembered short lists to ensure you don’t miss anything. For a wildfire plan, we suggest the “Six Ps” and to have this list in your smartphone or vehicle.
  • People and pets
  • Papers, phone numbers, and important documents
  • Prescriptions, vitamins, and eyeglasses
  • Pictures and irreplaceable memorabilia¬†
  • Personal computer or iPad device, external hard drive, etc.
  • Plastic (Credit, ATM cards)

Stay In Touch

It’s essential that you maintain an up-to-date communications plan that you can use during any emergency, including a wildfire.

Include Your Insurance 411

Hopefully, you won’t need to worry about insurance as a result of a wildfire. However, it’s good to be prepared. Make certain you either have a copy of your current insurance policy, or at least the key things that every policy provides.
  • Your insurance company and contact info
  • Your policy/premium number and expiration date
  • The key things your policy covers
  • The deductible amount for the policy
REMEMBER: You may have more than one policy, such as the California FAIR Plan for the structure, and a separate plan for the contents of your home.
