Personal or family preparedness plans

A plan can assist your family to deal with forest fire smoke and to be ready in case your community is evacuated. Simple measures can go a long way to make your summer safer, such as purchasing an air purifier with HEPA filters for your home, keeping your cell phone charged, your car filled with gas, having enough medications on hand to last for at least 5 days, and keeping a list of essential things to take with you during an evacuation.

Post a checklist on your refrigerator or other prominent place in your home to remind you. To download a Checklist, click here.
