Getting ready to GO is step #3 in keeping your home and family safe from wildfires.
There are countless stories of people who have died in wildfires because they refused to leave when they were told to evacuate. Still others died because they didn’t make the necessary preparations in advance of the wildfire, and when it came time to evacuate they weren’t prepared and panicked.
If you’ve followed Step #1 – READY, and Step #2 – SET, then you’re ready to GO.
If you live in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), high hazard and red flag days are the days when you need to make immediate preparations for a possible wildfire evacuation.
When you receive the evacuation order, LEAVE IMMEDIATELY.
