With Wildfire Season Looming, Officials Urge Preparation

As wildfire season approaches in La Cañada Flintridge, officials are urging residents to stay safe by following lifesaving tips centered around preparation.

Officials encourage residents to prepare an emergency kit with essentials such as food, water and medications, to plan evacuation routes and a family communication plan, and to stay informed via local alerts and news.

Residents are encouraged to also prepare their property by clearing dead vegetation and flammable materials, maintain a defensible space around the home, and use fire-resistant materials for landscaping and home improvements.

In the event of evacuation, residents should have a “Go Bag” ready with important documents, clothes and supplies, keep a vehicle fueled and parked facing the street, and follow evacuation orders promptly for safety.
