Wildfires are destructive and extremely dangerous. The most important thing to know before you leave your home, is where the fire is, how fast it is spreading and from what direction it is approaching. One of the most important items to take with you, is an emergency preparedness kit. These kits are especially designed to provide you and your family with enough food, water, clothing, first aid, lighting and other essential supplies to last 72 hours. These kits can be lifesavers.
