It's always a good time to prepare & plan
Leaving early is the safest option to protect yourself and your family.
Leaving early means leaving the area before a fire starts – not when you can see flames or smell smoke. Leaving early means avoiding panic, being trapped, making the wrong choices and risking serious injury or death. Talk to your family and friends about how you’ll know when to leave and where to go to stay safe.
