Critical Event Kit for Public Safety - Wildfires

Wildfires, characterized by their unplanned, uncontrolled, and unpredictable nature, stand as formidable challenges to communities and organizations worldwide. According to the Congressional Research Service, a staggering 85% of these events stem from human activities. This alarming statistic underscores the need for heightened awareness and preventive measures.

In addition, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has cited drought and persistent heat as primary contributors to the intensification of wildfires. This heightened flammability, combined with other factors, sets the stage for longer, more active fire seasons.

Understanding how all these factors play a part is crucial for anticipating and mitigating the impact of wildfires and bushfires, especially in the context of changing climate patterns.

Inside this critical event kit, we will unravel the complexities of responding to unplanned wildfires and offer tangible strategies, solutions, and steps to fortify your response against this ever-growing threat.

What's inside:

- Best practices: Improve your emergency communication

during wildfires

- System checklist: Ensuring public safety during wildfires

- Communication templates: For wildfire messaging

And much more...
