  • Close windows and doors
  • Consider moving combustible items (patio furniture, grill, firewood) from the exterior of your home to interior or center of lawn.
  • Leave exterior lights on so that firefighters can find your home in smoky conditions.
  • Consider leaving sprinklers, garden hose(s), and ladders in plain view. Firefighters may use them.
