Help Save California from Burning
With all the wildfires ravaging California we’d like to offer some helpful tips to assist in keeping our great state safe.
- If you see a wildfire and haven't received evacuation orders yet, call 9-1-1. Don't assume someone else has called.
If ordered to evacuate during a wildfire, do it immediately- make sure and tell someone where you are going and when you have arrived.
Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications. To find out what alerts are available in your area, search the Internet with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.”
If you or someone you are with has been burned, call 9-1-1 or seek help immediately; cool and cover burns to reduce chance of further injury or infection.
Regularly clean the roof and gutters.
Maintain an area approximately 30’ away from you home that is free of anything that will burn, such as wood piles, dried leaves, newspapers and other brush.
Connect garden hoses long enough to reach any area of the home and fill garbage cans, tubs, or other large containers with water.
Review your homeowner's insurance policy and also prepare/update a list of your home's contents.
Before Wildfire season – Make a Wildfire plan
Know your wildfire risk.
Make a wildfire emergency plan.
Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
Familiarize yourself with local emergency plans. Know where to go and how to get there should you need to evacuate.
Stay tuned to your phone alerts, TV, or radio, for weather updates, emergency instructions or evacuation orders.
