How to Stay Safe During a Brushfire

Brushfire season is here in full swing. So, we wanted to educate you on what to do as a homeowner.

We met with Assistant Fire Chief, Gene Rogers of South Trail Fire Department to ask what to do when a fire is approaching. Chief Rogers couldn’t stress the importance of evacuation enough. Always evacuate your home if you are in the surrounding area of a brushfire. Chief Rogers explains, “Homes can be replaced, but life cannot”.

If you are a homeowner in a heavily wooded area, authorities recommend having 30 feet of space between your house and the woods. Make sure there is a clear path for the first responders to gain access to your home. If you have rain gutters, make sure they are clear of leaves and tree debris as they are a great fuel for fire.
