The National Ready, Set, Go! Program – For the Resident
The Ready, Set, Go! Program seeks to share information with residents on what they can do to successfully prepare for a wildland fire. Speak with a Tomball Fire Department representative about your area’s threat for wildland fire and learn more about the wildland urban interface (WUI). Fire season is an increasing threat and a year-round reality in many areas. Do your part to be prepared.
Ready – Be fire-adapted and ready
Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildland fire so your home is ready in case of a fire. Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home. Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures. Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe place. Plan escape routes and make sure all those residing in the home know the plan of action.
Set – Situational awareness
Pack your emergency items. Know how to receive and stay aware of the latest news and information on the fire from local media, your Tomball Fire Department and public safety.
Go! - Act early
Follow your personal wildland fire action plan. Also be sure to adhere to your local jurisdiction’s evacuation processes. Doing so will not only support your safety, but will allow firefighters to best maneuver resources to combat the fire.
