What to do if You're Caught in a Wildfire


What to do if You're Caught in a Wildfire

 
 
 
  • Get out as quickly as possible. Wildfire moves fast - faster than you can run.
  • If you are being threatened by a wildfire close at hand, your best bet is to move downhill.
  • Stay low.
  • Take cover in a rocky area. Crawl under overhanging boulders and away from brush and fuel sources.
  • Call 911 for help as soon as you are in a relatively safe spot.
