Be prepared
Forest Fires

As the North Shore's population continues to grow and more people build homes in or near wildland areas,the risk of forest fires increases. A wind-driven forest fire, out of control and moving fast, could quickly spread from the forest to threaten your family's safety, home, and property.

Wildfires are rare on the North Shore, but by planning ahead and knowing what to do and where to go if fire threatens your area can substantially reduce your risk. Unfortunately, people start most wildfires, so please do your part to find out how to prevent forest fires and how to practice and promote forest fire safety.
