Take some time this weekend to determine your status should you have to suddenly leave your home if necessary using the "Ready, Set, Go!" concept. Are you Firewise enough? What did you overlook? Where will that ember sneak past your defenses? Have you cut enough brush? Are the trees pruned high enough'? You want to have all this done BEFORE the wildfire happens. Think about hydrating the landscaping all around your house, and Don't wait until it's too late -- Take time to prepare your wildfire evacuation plan now hunting down that last spot where pine needles or leaves may have collected from our last high winds. How about the "Set" part of "Ready, Set, Go!" Do you have your personal evacuation checklist available? (A great place to keep it is taped to your refrigerator or next to your phone). Where are all the important papers and documents? Some .may still be in the same place as a few years ago, but, time passes and other newer documents are spread throughout the house. Where are the vehicle titles? Are your marriage license and birth certificates still in the same place? How aboiat the Insurance papers? The list goes on and on. Which medications do you need? Think about backing up the computer to a portable hard drive that will fit in your back pocket. Imagine trying to recreate years of documents from memory. We recomntend going through your entire house with a video camera and capturing everything in the house. Take a set of the videos, on CDs, to a safe location away from home. If you have to "Go" and evacuate, have an Emergency Supply Kit packed and eas- ily accessible so you can take it with you when you have to evacuate. Backpacks work great for storing these items (except food and water) and are quick to grab. Storing food and water in a tub or chest on wheels will make it easier to transport. Keep it light enough to be able to lift it into your car. Meet with your family to decide what to do and where to go if wildfires threaten your area. Where is your meeting place and does everyone in your house know it? Using these simple tips will help you be prepared should you be faced with a wildfire evacuation. For ideas for your emergency supply kit and other tips to prepare your home in case of evacuation go to For more information on protecting your home from wildfire cot]tact the Plumas Firesafe Council or your local fire department.
