Surviving a Wildfire

According to the National Interagency Fire Center, federal wildfire suppression costs range from $1-2 billion annually. Here are some tips to help you survive during a wildfire.

  • Call 9-1-1 to report a fire. Don’t assume that someone else has reported it.
  • Monitor the Emergency Alert System (EAS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAAO Weather Radio), and local alerting systems.
  • Stay inside in a safe location or go to a community building where smoke levels are lower.
  • Use N95 masks to filter out harmful particles in the air.
  • Evacuate immediately when ordered to do so by authorities.
  • If you are trapped, call 9-1-1 to report your location and turn on lights to help rescuers find you.
