As the fall season approaches with Holloween soon approching it is a good time to join the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “Don’t be a Zombie. Be Prepared” campaign by doing three simple things – get a kit, make a plan, and be informed. 
 “If your family and neighbors are prepared for a zombie invasion, then you’re ready for any emergency whether it’s fire, extreme weather or a pandemic.”
Tips to residents for all-hazards preparedness:

Get a Kit: After an emergency, it may not be possible to get to the grocery store or other supply stores. Take time now to put together an emergency preparedness kit. It’s important to have at least three to seven days of food, water and supplies for each member of the household, including pets.

Make a Plan: Develop a family emergency plan that details how to contact one another, how to get to a safe place, and what to do in different situations. Practice this plan before an emergency.

Be Informed: Learn more about practical common-sense preparedness. Staying informed can help our community successfully prepare for, adapt to, and recover from disasters.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
