WILDFIRE awareness: Preparedness and evacuations

AUSTIN – Wildland fires pose a threat throughout Texas, especially when dry weather conditions combine with high winds and extreme temperatures. Whether you live near open grassland, in a suburban area on the edge of town or in a forested area, fire can threaten your home. When weather conditions make wildland fires more likely, take the following precautions:

  • Keep fire fighting tools handy, such as: ladder long enough to reach the roof, shovel, rake and buckets.
  • Place connected garden hoses on all sides of the house for emergency use.
  • Know all emergency exits from your house.
  • Learn all routes leading out of your neighborhood.

As fires actually approach, take the following actions:

  • Park your car facing the direction of escape.
  • Shut off gas at the meter. Only a qualified professional can safely turn the gas back on.
  • Turn off propane tanks.
  • Place combustible patio furniture inside.
  • Seal vents with pre-cut plywood or commercial seals.
  • Wet down or remove shrubs within 15 feet of your residence.
  • Place lawn sprinklers on roof and near above-ground fuel tanks. Wet down the roof.
  • Close windows, vents, doors, blinds and non combustible window coverings. Remove flammable drapes and curtains.
  • Close interior doors and windows to prevent drafts.

If advised to evacuate, do so immediately. Choose a route away from the fire hazard and be alert to changes in the speed and direction of fire and smoke.
