Gather fire-safe clothing, helmets, lights, crowbars, etc. to have at the ready.
Have a go-bag ready to grab
Designated emergency meeting location outside the fire area.
Know several different escape routes from you home and community. Join your Neighborhood Group to find alternative evacuation routes for your area.
Have a communications plan that designates an out-of-area friend or relative as a point of contact to act as a single communication source/hub among family members in case of separation (It is easier to call or message one person and let them contact others. The phone, cell, and Internet systems may become overloaded, limited, or damaged during a disaster.)
Show responsible family members and neighbors how to shut off propane
Keeping a sturdy pair of boots (ideally) or shoes and a flashlight near your bed at all times
Connect garden hoses to hose bibs for firefighters to use. Attach squeeze grip nozzles to hoses.
Keep clean your gutters and blow leaves away from the house.
Consider Pre-assigning duties among family members for evacuation to move faster
Assuring that all family members know how to “stop, drop, and roll” if clothes catch fire
