Wildfires Destroy More Than Trees – Be Prepared

Wildfires are common disasters that can spread quickly, particularly during dry conditions. Learning about wildfire risks and planning in advance can help protect against the destructive impacts of wildfires. OSHA and NOAA are working together on a public education effort aimed at improving the way people prepare for and respond to wildfires.

Being prepared and having an evacuation plan in place before a wildfire occurs can help avoid confusion and prevent injuries. A thorough evacuation plan should include:

  1. Conditions that will activate the plan
  2. Chain of command
  3. Emergency functions and who will perform them
  4. Specific evacuation procedures, including routes and exits
  5. Procedures for accounting for personnel, customers and visitors
  6. Equipment for personnel
  7. Review the plan with workers

Some businesses are required to have an Emergency Action Plan meeting the requirements under 29 CFR 1910.38. See Evacuation Plans and Procedures eTool for more information.
