Ready, Set, Go!
Create Your Own Wildfire Action Plan

Ready, Set, Go! (RSG!) helps fire departments teach individuals who live in high risk wildfire areas – and the wildland urban interface – how to best prepare themselves and their properties against fire threats. RSG! tenets help residents be Ready with preparedness understanding, be Set with situational awareness when fire threatens, and to Go, acting early when a fire starts.

 

Ready – Be ready, be Firewise.  Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildfire so your home is ready in case of a fire. Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home. Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures. Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe place. Plan escape routes and make sure all those residing within the home know the plan of action.

 

Set – Situational awareness.  Pack your emergency items. Stay aware of the latest news and information on the fire from local media, your local fire department, and public safety.

 

Go – Act early!  Follow your personal wildland fire action plan. Doing so will not only support your safety, but will allow firefighters to best maneuver resources to combat the fire.
