Make a plan for your family so everyone understands how to communicate and connect in the event of a wildfire or other emergency situation. Have a printed out list of contact information for everyone in the family, for schools, relatives and friends. Make sure emergency contact information is current at schools and daycare. And talk about emergency meeting locations – where your family can get together. This is one thing you can do to be prepared for wildfire season.
