Pay Attention to Red Flag Warnings

Fire agencies monitor weather conditions daily and use indexes and predictions to make decisions about how to fight fires and how to prevent new fires from igniting. Residents and visitors to areas where wildfires are likely to occur should be aware of current and predicted weather conditions, and should take additional actions to prepare their family, home, and community when risk is elevated.

Invest in Backup Power & Generators

It’s very common for the power to go out before a fire strikes since fire and winds can damage electrical infrastructure. You need to be prepared to communicate and escape, even without power. Fire Safe Marin strongly recommends that all Marin residents invest in backup batteries, uninterruptible power supplies, generators, and battery-powered radios.
