Summertime & Fire Safety Strike a Great Match

July 20th, 2011

It’s summertime, and many of us are lucky enough to fire up a BBQ on the weekend as we enjoy a “staycation”…(a real word now in the Merriam-Webster dictionary)!  Although it might not be the ideal time to think about fire safety, The Red Guide to Recovery’s Fire Preparedness page provides some quick resources to check out.  It’s always the right time to prepare for a wildfire.

See The Red Guide To Recovery Fire Preparedness page and:

  • Use some summer family time, with kids at home from school, to build a Family Escape Plan using an easy online tool
  • Check out a great 6-page WildfireAction Plan brochure that gives excellent images and descriptions of a “Wildfire Ready Home”, and shows examples of how to create defensible space around your home
  • Watch a video on what to do to protect your home before a fire and hear incredible fire survivor stories
