Wildfire Safety

With the recent wildfires and media, many are thinking about how safe their own home may be in the event of wildfire. There are many programs available for learning about fire safety and prevention, and everyone should be equipped to bug out in the event of any disaster - this means equipping with emergency kits as well and evacuation and fire safety supplies.

Here's a great video from the NFPA on making sure yours is a "Fire Safe" home:

The Making Your Home Firewise® video presents ideas and techniques for homeowners when constructing or modifying home in the wildland/urban interface areas. Topics covered in the video are: Roof, Windows, Eaves, Decks, and Landscaping. The video also provides information that a prevention officer or anyone with cooperative duties can use in a presentation or as a basis of discussion for various local groups.
