Wildfire Survival: Prepare for & Survive a Wildfire (Urban Survival) (Other)
Every year across our Nation, people lose their homes due to wildfires that often begin unnoticed. These fires are usually triggered by lightning or accidents and spread incredibly quickly, igniting brush, trees, and homes. Those homes fortunate enough to survive a wildfire, often do so because their owners were prepared. Based on international protocols, Wildfire Survival focuses on what people can do before, during and after a wildlife to protect themselves and their property. Also included in each guide are smartphone QR codes that link to the websites of various emergency services agencies. Laminated for durability, this portable guide is an ideal source of quick and accurate information. Made in the USA.
