Top Three Ways to Prepare for a Wildfire:
1. Design and landscape your home with wildfire safety in mind. Use materials and
plants that can help contain fire rather than fuel it.
2. Teach each family member how to use a fire extinguisher (ABC type)
and show them where it's kept.
3. Regularly clean roof and gutters.
