Go!

WHEN AUTHORITIES TELL YOU TO LEAVE, DON’T HESITATE

EVACUATING AHEAD OF A WILDFIRE

IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE

THE THIRD STEP – GO!

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.

On High Hazard Days

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.

  • Monitor news radio stations, the Red Flag website and other information sources
  • Pack your car with your survival kits and pet supplies
  • Review your evacuation routes
  • Call your out-of-state contact and update that person on your family’s status
  • Update your social media status on sites your friends and family monitor, so they know your plans
  • If you have a pool, place the pump in it, to prepare the water supply for firefighters if they need it
  • Back your car into your driveway
  • If you are under a Red Flag warning, make sure your vehicles are OFF THE STREET
  • Pack important documents, cash and irreplaceable items in your fireproof safe box, or include them in your evacuation kit
  • Turn the lights ON in your home
  • SHUT OFF the air conditioner
  • CLOSE all doors and windows

LEAVE

When you receive the evacuation order, LEAVE IMMEDIATELY.
