WHAT SHOULD CONCERNED RESIDENTS DO?

If the way is clear, go to a safer place now.

Don’t wait, leaving at the last minute can kill.

Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but run water through the system if possible.

If you can’t get out, get ready to take shelter in your house.

Move to a room in your house away from the fire front and make sure you have an easy escape.

Choose a room with two exits and water, such as a kitchen or laundry room.

If you are not at home, it is too dangerous to return.
