Fire evacuation information |

Fire evacuation information

• Listen to local radio, TV and visit The Union’s Web site at for information.

• Leave quickly, taking only what you need, such as your wallet or purse with cash, credit cards and prescription pills. Forget the boat.

• Once on the road, listen to law enforcement directives and obey roadblocks.

• Drive away from the fire and think about alternate routes. Don’t drive into smoke.

• Wear protective clothing – sturdy shoes, cotton or woolen clothing, long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and gloves. Bring a handkerchief to protect your face.

• Lock your home. Tell someone when you left and where you are going.

• Make sure that fire vehicles can get to your home. Ensure that driveway entrances are clearly marked.
