AN EVACUATION ORDER COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE

If you live in Los Angeles, wildfires are a fact of life. They are as common as the hot, dry weather that brings them. And due to climate change and the ever expanding population in Southern California, wildfire season is now all year long.

There is no more unpredictable and dangerous fire than a wind-driven wildfire. As winds change intensity and direction, a wildfire can go from a contained, small burn in a backyard to a raging inferno acres in size. And it can happen in minutes. Wildfires can burn so hot and grow so large, that they actually create their own weather.

This is not something you can fight with your garden hose!

You need to know:

  • How to “harden your home” to protect it from wildfires in the future
  • How to protect and prepare your home when a wildfire is imminent
  • How to prepare your family and pets for wildfires
  • How to evacuate safely when the time comes
