How to Prepare

Ready! Set! Go!

The Ready, Set, Go! Program was developed by CAL FIRE to help educate property owners and residents in areas with the highest risk to be ready for the next wildfire.

The program is comprised of three basic steps:

  • STEP 1: Be READY – Create and maintain defensible space and harden your home against flying embers.
  • STEP 2: Get SET – Prepare your family and home ahead of time for the possibility of having to evacuate.
  • STEP 3: Be ready to GO – Take the evacuation steps necessary to give your family and home the best chance of surviving a wildfire.
