After the Fire

What to do AFTER a Wildfire:

 

•Check with fire officials before attempting to return to your home.

 

•Use caution when re-entering a burned area - flare-ups can occur.

 

•Check grounds for hot spots, smoldering stumps, and vegetation. Use your buckets of water.

 

•Check the roof and exterior areas for sparks and embers.

 

•Check the attic and throughout the house for hidden burning, sparks and embers.

 

•Continue to check for problem areas for several days. Contact 911 if any danger is perceived.

 

•Respect all roadblocks until opened. 

•Contact your insurance company if damage has occurred. 

•Prepare for and expect possible flooding.
