Wildfire Preparation List

As residents of Colorado, we are no strangers to the risks of wildfires. Being prepared can significantly reduce the risk to our homes and personal safety. Below, you'll find essential steps to enhance your fire preparedness. Implementing these measures can make a critical difference in protecting your family and property. Let's stay safe by staying prepared.


Create Defensible Space
Clear leaves, debris, and other flammable materials from within at least 30 feet of your home. Trim trees and shrubs to keep branches a minimum of 10 feet apart.
Emergency Evacuation Plan
Have a well-practiced family evacuation plan. Know your community’s evacuation routes and have a predetermined meeting point.
Emergency Supply Kit
Prepare an emergency kit that includes:
  • N95 masks to protect from smoke
  • First aid supplies
  • Essential medications
  • Copies of important documents (insurance, property records)
  • Food and water for several days
  • Flashlights, batteries, and chargers
  • Items for pets if applicable
Communication Plan
Ensure all family members know how to communicate during a fire. Designate a relative or friend outside the area as a central contact point.
Vehicle Preparedness
Keep your vehicle fueled and equipped with emergency supplies and a change of clothes.
