Summary: Following some simple guidelines can keep you safe during a growing wildfire.

Most people are aware that floods, earthquakes, storms, and heat waves are all serious matters but how many people can say they are prepared for when one hits? Natural disaster preparedness could seem like a vague and confusing topic but it ultimately boils down to having the knowledge and supplies you need to comfortably react to whatever may come your way.

If you live in an area near a wildfire you probably have several things running through your mind. The stress of a fire spreading can be overwhelming but staying on top of the situation can help you and the ones you care about get out safely.

Take Care of Your Body

Taking care of your body is one of the most important things you can do during a wildfire situation. If the fire is close to the house you should keep your windows and doors shut. Ashes in the air outside can hurt your lungs. The air can get particularly dry the closer you get to the fire, so you will want to stay hydrated. Some stores sell containers you can use to safely store large amounts of water.

Limit Outside Time

When there is a wildfire warning in your area you need to be mindful of how safe it is to be outside. There are services you can use to check the air quality in your particular neighborhood. You can determine how much time you can safely spend outside.

On the topic of being aware of the environment outside, keep highly flammable objects far away from the house to avoid any accidents.
