With all the fires, it is a good idea to sign up for local alerts in case of an emergency evacuation. You will be able to plug into your area or any area. You will get texts on your phone alerting you to any emergency or evacuation.

In case of an evacuation, it is a great idea to have all your important papers with you. You might want to put together an emergency pack with birth certificates, social security cards credit cards, and cash. Also, make sure you have a plan for your pets.

We also wish to thank all our firefighters who have braved this storm and continue to battles these fires. We thank them and their families for their sacrifice.
