What to do after a wildfire

  • Check the roof immediately. Put out any roof fires, sparks or embers. Check the attic for hidden burning sparks.
  • If you have a fire, get your neighbors to help fight it.
  • The water you put into your pool or hot tub and other containers wilt come in handy now. If the power is out, try connecting a hose to the outlet on your water heater.
  • For several hours after the fire, maintain a “fire watch.” Re-check for smoke and sparks throughout the house.
