Wildfire Safety: Planning Ahead, Reducing Risk

by | Oct 16, 2019 | Auto & Home

Anyone who lives in a fire-prone area knows how quickly wildfires can ruin and/or destroy homes and structures. They can cause injuries or death to people and animals and can happen nearly instantly.

What is the 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 often be caused by humans or lightning, and the risk of wildfires can increase during periods of little rain and high winds.

Some people may not be aware that wildfires can actually contribute to flooding and they can also disrupt transportation, gas, power, and communications.

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.

Our goal is to provide information that will keep you safe, while offering financial protection and security.
