Evacuation P List and Go Bag “Why and What”

Essential components of being prepared for an emergency evacuation, like a wildfire, is creating a “P” List and a “Go – Bag.” 

A “P” (Preparation) List and a Go-Bag will help you:

(P)reserve and (P)rotect Life
(P)revent Loss and
(P)romote Recovery

During an emergency, human instinct responses, like PANIC, often hin-der ones ability to FOCUS, especially when time is a factor. A “P” list serves as a reminder of what is most important for you to do quickly.

P- List notations
  • Remind you to collect the most ESSENTIAL items in your house within a 5 -10 minute period before having to evacuate
  • Help sustain you for a period of at least 72 hours
  • Assist in rebuilding your life if everything is lost.
 Go- Bag contents
  • Promote physical comfort and wellbeing for family and pets
  • Contain first aid and emergency supplies
  • Help manage disaster recovery

Remember — your First (P)riority is always — LIFE SAFETY!

Adopt a Fire Hydrant

We are asking you to take notice of where the fire hydrants are located nearest to your home especially in the WINTER!

Adopting a fire hydrant is keeping the hydrant clear of snow so that firefighters have quick access if there is a fire. Those precious minutes could save your home or a neighbor’s home. Neighbors can join in and take turns with the snow removal. Thank you!
