What Is Your Wildfire Safety Plan?

🔥 California’s cycle of relentless heat and drought conditions make wildfires an ever-present risk. In the past five years, we witnessed the most destructive wildfire seasons in California's history. This serves as a crucial reminder that wildfires can strike anytime. Don't wait for a disaster to unfold; stay prepared, be ready to evacuate early, and have a 5-minute plan in place for a safe and swift escape.
