Keep Your Family Safe by creating a 5 minute escape plan

More than 2.7 million Californians live in very high fire hazard severity zones. Record breaking temperatures and drier conditions put many Californians at risk for wildfires. Stay prepared, plan out evacuation routes, and evacuate early to keep you and your family safe.

  • Evacuate early when fire or disaster is present
  • Have an established meeting place
  • Pack an emergency kit with essentials like medicine, important documents, clothes, food, and water.
  • Familiarize yourself with Red Flag Warning and how to get weather reports
  • If you need to go, get your emergency bags packed and gather your family and pets.
  • Most important, don’t wait for the evacuation order.

Evacuating from your home early can mean the difference of life or death. When a wildfire or other disaster strikes, be prepared to leave in a moment’s notice. Having a 5-minute plan with an escape route can get you and your family out and safe. Don’t wait to be told to be evacuated, leave before fires get too close.
