Ready for Wildfire

This document presents actions you can take to defend your property.

Don’t think you live in a wildfire zone?  Think again!!  At the very least,

  • Keep working fire extinguishers on hand.
  • Install smoke alarms on each level of your home and in bedrooms. Test them monthly and change the batteries twice a year.  HINT: Choose a memorable date such as your anniversary
  • Replace the entire smoke alarm every 10 years.  Free smoke alarms are available from the Los Angeles Fire Department or  MySAFE: LA
