The Importance of Information
In today's world of 50,000+ acre wildfires, firefighters from across the country arrive to aid in battling fires but are often not given maps. Even local first responders don't have complete or accurate information about what assets a property has that can be utilized to fight wildland fire.
For firefighters, knowing what's available is important in facilitating an effective response and attack especially in times of crisis. With this sign, you can communicate with them that you have prepared by hardening your home, creating defensible space and that you have assets that can be valuable in their battle.
How it works
How to fill it out: Once you receive your sign, use a permanent marker or paint pen to fill out the fields. If there is information you do not want to share such as your phone number just leave the field blank. Read more detailed instructions.
Where to keep it: Store your sign with the rest of your wildfire evacuation equipment. Some residents choose to hang it up during the fire season.
How to hang it: Use the grommet holes on the top and bottom to secure your sign. We have found string to be effective.
Where to hang it Make sure your sign is visible to first responders passing by your property. Some folks may choose to buy multiple signs for added visibility.
