ABSTRACT

Fires and Wildfires Information Guide   [open html - 36KB]

"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 [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] and NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] are working together on a public education effort aimed at improving the way people prepare for and respond to wildfires. This page is designed to help workers and employers prepare for a wildfire and to protect themselves in the wildfire's aftermath. The Preparedness page provides information on evacuation plans, safety zones around buildings, and equipment to have on hand in case a wildfire occurs. Preparing plans in advance can help workers get to safety before a wildfire impacts an area and can also help protect personal property."
