If there is time to prepare your home BEFORE to a potential evacuation, here is Cal Fire’s pre-evacuation preparations list for inside and outside your home. If your family or your home are in imminent danger, evacuate immediately.
Having supplies for each member of your household is an important step for evacuation preparation. Cal Fire recommends having a three-day supply of non-perishable food and three gallons of water per person. See Cal Fire’s full emergency supply kit checklist here.
