2020 Wildfire Preparedness Campaign

Wildfire season is coming. Are you ready?
Ashland Fire & Rescue and the Ashland Wildfire Safety Commission bring you a 3-month spring wildfire preparedness campaign.

Wildfire Preparedness Campaign Elements:

April: Be Firewise! Prepare your home and property.

Now is the time to Prepare Your Home! While you are more homebound than usual as you shelter indoors during the Coronavirus outbreak, take time to clean up yard debris, move stored combustibles from against your home and under your deck, and clean out your rain gutters. Also prune overgrown vegetation around your home.

May: Be Ready to evacuate or shelter indoors.

Most years, May is the month we urge Ashland residents to prepare their home environments to either evacuate or shelter indoors, depending on the situation if a wildfire is approaching. Of course, this year many of us are already sheltering indoors due to Coronavirus. Take stock of what recommended "shelter indoors" supplies you may lack in a wildfire context, as wildfire presents different challenges compared to the current COVID-19 crisis. 

Check out Ready, Set, Go! to prepare for an evacuation.

Ready Set Go! logo-The Ready, Set, Go! (RSG!) program is utilized byMay Flyer Ashland Fire & Rescue to help educate residents on what to expect in the event of a disaster related evacuation. The tenets of Ready, Set, Go! help residents be Ready with preparedness understanding, be Set with situational awareness when fire threatens, and to Go!, leaving promptly when evacuation orders are given or when safety feels compromised.
-Now is the time to prepare yourself and your home for the possibility ofJune Flyer smoke in the valley.
