During

  • Find your zone by address.
  • Alert family and neighbors.
  • Shut all windows and doors.
  • Remove flammable window shades, lightweight curtains and close metal shutters.
  • Move flammable furniture to the center of room.
  • Shut off gas at the source (meter or tank), turn off pilot lights and propane tanks and move propane BBQs/appliances away from structures.

  • Shut off air conditioning.
  • Connect garden hoses to outside water valves or spigots for use by firefighters. Fill water buckets and place them around the house.
  • Don’t leave sprinklers on or water running. This can affect critical water pressure.
  • Have a ladder available and place it at the corner of the house, so firefighters can quickly access the roof.
  • Leave gates open for access.
  • Monitor the fire situation. If you feel threatened, don’t wait for an evacuation order, leave.
