Be Ready For A Harsh Summer Fire Season

 

 

 If your Home or Neighborhood is immediately affected…

 

  •  Remain calm. Listen to the radio or television for updates and evacuation information.
  •  

  • Be prepared to evacuate immediately. Keep your Survival Kit both in your home and in your car—including food, purified water, emergency power, smoke-inhalation masks and appropriate tools.
  •  

  • Wear protective clothing when outside – sturdy shoes, cotton or woolen clothes, long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, gloves and mask (or handkerchief).
  •  

  • Have an arrangement for temporary housing at a relative or close friends. (Barring that, have a list of pre-designated community emergency centers.)

  • Place a ladder against the house in clear view.
  •  

  • Keep important papers, valuables and critical documents in a fire-proof container and have them ready to move at a moment’s notice.
  •  

  • The most dangerous aspect of fires is smoke-inhalation. Make sure you have smoke masks and be ready to evacuate before smoke becomes a serious threat to breathing.
  •  

  • Move flammable furniture into the middle of a room.
  •  

  • Keep An Emergency Car Kit in your Car updated at all times.

Post Fire Recovery Tips
 

  • Do not try to return home unless cleared to do so. (Use local alert systems to stay informed.)
  •  

  • Most Wildfires last several days. Be prepared to be away from your home for at least a week until the fire is officially cleared.
  •  

  • If you have evacuated, do not reenter your home until fire officials say it is safe.
  •  

  • For several hours after cleared from the event maintain a “fire watch.” Check for sparks and smoke in the house.
  •  

  • If you detect heat or smoke when entering a damaged building, evacuate immediately.
  •  

  • Avoid damaged or fallen power lines, poles and downed wires. Avoid all contact with electrical outlets and compromised power sources in your home.
  •  

  • Follow public health guidelines for safe cleanup and removal of ashes, carbon-compromised and scorched materials.
  •  

  • Try to minimize breathing dust particles and after-smoke.
  •  

  • Use non-flammable cleaning materials.
  •  

  • Discard any food, water or beverages that have been contaminated by smoke or scorched.
  •  

  • Do not use any water source that you think may be contaminated.
  •  

  • Avoid compromised appliances until proper professional evaluations have been made.
