September is National Preparedness Month

According to ready.gov, "National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is no better time to be involved this September."

As a part of National Preparedness Month, the Nevada Wildfire Awareness Campaign has prepared wildfire preparedness posts below.

Many people living in high fire hazard areas have pets and livestock. Prepare to evacuate your animals before wildfire happens. Pack a go-bag with everything your animals might need and make sure that you can safely transport them. Consult our guide “Fire Adapted Communities: The Next Step in Wildfire Preparedness” to learn more.

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are happening. Weather conditions can consist of strong winds, low humidity, warm temperatures, or a combination of such. All can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Be aware of the fire warnings in your area and always follow the instructions provided by local emergency officials. Learn more below.
