If you are unable to evacuate, stay in your home during the fire. It will be much hotter and more dangerous on the outside.
Call 911 for assistance.
Turn on all exterior lights.
Stay away from windows and move to an interior room or hallway.
Do not attempt to leave until after the fire has passed and you can safely leave.
Check for small fires inside the house and extinguish them.
Drink plenty of water.
Make sure you can exit the house if it catches fire.
Fill sinks and tubs with water.
Place wet rags under doors and other openings to prevent entry of embers and smoke.
Once the fire front has passed, check your flowerbeds, roof, rain gutters, attic and crawl space for fires or burning embers and extinguish them.
If You Cannot Evacuate Your Animals
Bring small animals indoors. Do not leave pets tethered outdoors.
Leave only dry food in non-spill containers. Do not leave treats or vitamins.
Depending on your pet’s needs, leave water in bathtubs, sinks or nonspill containers.
Do not confine mixed species of pets, such as cats, dogs, hamsters and birds in the same room even if they normally get along.
Move livestock and horses to a safe area, such as a recently grazed or mown pasture, riding arena or irrigated pasture. Never release them onto streets and roads. Provide enough feed and water for at least 48 hours.
Notify fire agency personnel of livestock on pasture or rangeland to coordinate evacuation.
Notify your county’s animal services department about animals you could not evacuate.
