Be Prepared: Individual, Community, Trinity Prepared


Before Wildfire Strikes, Develop an Action Plan

· Where to go — Have a safe destination planned, such as the home of a friend or relative, or an evacuation center.

· How to get there — Plan several travel route options, just in case one route is blocked.

· What to take — Assemble an emergency supply kit long   before a wildfire or other disaster occurs.  Plan to be away from home for at least 3 weeks. Remember to pack all medications and needed medical equipment. Prepare a plan for pets and livestock as well.

· Ensure that you have access to emergency notifications by signing up for the Trinity County Alert System, CodeRed.

Take Action Immediately when Wildfire Strikes

· Stay Calm.

· Review your Evacuation Checklist.

· Ensure your Emergency Supply Kit is in your vehicle.

· Locate your pets and take them with you.

· Cover up to protect against heat and flying embers; wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, heavy shoes or boots, and a head/face cover, such as a bandana or towel.
