- Review pre-evacuation preparation from Cal Fire
- Sign-up for evacuation alerts on your cell phone:
Do not rely solely on these alerts as damaged cell towers could stop messages from getting to you. Instead, if you or your family sees a dangerous fire situation or feels unsafe, evacuate to be safe. http://www.nixle.com/
- Make sure you have a land line phone that does not need power:
Many telephones, especially portable phones, require power to function and often fail in emergencies. Instead, make sure you have an older model phone that only needs the phone cord (and no power cords) to work.
- Record your belongings:
In the tragic event of fire damage, having records of your belongings will help with the insurance and recovery process. An easy way to do this is to take photos of every room, closet, and storage area and store these photos on the cloud. For a more organized record, here's some tools under Home Inventory and Evacuation Tools http://www.uphelp.org/roadmap-preparedness
