Wildfire Evacuation Preparedness

Information, Procedures, and Evacuation Drill Tips While defensible space and home-hardening should be the first step in preparedness, this presentation will guide you through the 7 key areas to focus on to be ready before fire threatens your home. 

Tips to Coordinate an Evacuation Drill  will walk you through how to practice your evacuation steps. FIRESafe MARIN recommends practicing this on your own first, and include any and all housemates/family members. Our goal is to have you in the car (just choose one - we recommend the vehicle with the most capacity and highest clearance), ready to go within 15 minutes of receiving an evacuation order. Practice in the months leading up to fire season.
