During a Wildfire your local law enforcement agency orders evacuations. If you feel threatened by a wildfire, do not wait for an official evacuation order.

There are three levels of evacuation:

LEVEL 1 - Be Ready: Prepare and monitor. Pack your valuables.
LEVEL 2 - Be Set: Be set to evacuate at a moment's notice.
LEVEL 3 - Go: Leave immediately!

If you are advised to evacuate, do so immediately. Take your emergency supply kit, lock your home and choose a route away from the fire hazard. Watch for changes in the speed and direction of the fire and smoke. Tell someone when you left and where you are going.

Remember the eight Ps in case immediate evacuation is required:
  1. People
  2. Pets
  3. Personal Computer
  4. Prescriptions
  5. Paperwork (important documents)
  6. Pictures
  7. Phone (cell phone)
  8. Plastic (credit/bank cards)​

Keep an extra kit in your car
