Ready, Set, Go! Begin Your Personal Wildland Fire Preparedness Efforts

Ready-Be Ready

Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildland fire so your property is ready to sustain the threat.  Create defensible space by clearing brush away from structures.  Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden structures using fire-safe construction measures.  Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe place.  Plan escape routes and make sure all those staying on the property are aware of these plans.

Set-Be Alert
Put together a "go kit"  Learn how to receive and stay aware of the latest news and information on the fire from local media, fire departments and public safety agencies.  Prepare your personal wildland fire action plan.

Go-Act Early
Follow your personal wildland fire action plan.  Doing so will not only support your safety, but will allow firefighters to best maneuver resources during response.
