Wildfire Safety: Planning Ahead and Getting Prepared

by | Jul 28, 2023 | Auto & Home

For those who live in fire-prone areas, you know just how quickly wildfires can ruin and destroy homes and structures. They can cause injuries or death to people, animals and the environment in an instant. In fact, flying embers from wildfires can ignite and destroy homes as far as ONE MILE AWAY!

What is the actual definition of a wildfire? It is an unplanned fire that burns in a natural area such as a forest, grassland, prairie, or land that is densely populated with foliage or brush. Wildfires can happen anywhere and at anytime. They can be caused by humans or lightning, and the risk of wildfires can increase during periods of little rain and high winds.

Did you know? Wildfires can actually contribute to flooding and can also disrupt transportation, gas, power, and communications.

We hope your home and family stay safe this season from wildfires. There are preparatory steps you can take to ensure your home and property are better protected. To learn more about wildfire safety, United Agencies has created a Wildfire Preparedness section on our website. You will find a plethora of online resources we think you will find helpful.

Be well and stay safe!
