Wildfires can impact individuals, families, communities, counties, states, and entire multi-state regions. Unfortunately, wildfires are becoming larger and more dangerous as wildfire seasons last longer due to climate change and drought.

Planning and safety becomes increasingly important when people move to rural or remote locations. To help you be better prepared, the American Red Cross has created a wildfire safety checklist to help prepare your home and community.
