Wildfire ESG Checklist

ESGWildfires can be fast moving and dangerous. Most of the time, the best course of action in a wildfire is to evacuate the area. That means you’ll need to have a bug-out bag staged and ready to go. You may also need to spend an extended period of time away from your house, and will need to take care of your loved ones and any pets you brought with you. Use this checklist to help prepare your wildfire bug-out bag.
