When a wildfire threatens, the first few minutes are the most critical for saving your home. Firefighters must be able to immediately locate and safely travel to your home in order to effectively protect it.

  • Roads must be able to accommodate busy traffic
  • At the same time that fire engines and other emergency equipment are trying to drive into your area, you must be able to escape in your car with your family and valuable personal possessions.
