Wildfires are common here in California.
They cause incredible damage every year. It was recorded that in 2018, California suffered over $400 billion in damage from fires and $1 costs to the fire department. Each year the costs increase. Why? Wildfires grow in size every year.
There are 5 causes for the growing fires.
The temperature is rising, the winter season grows shorter, there are more pests, drought and fire suppression. With the rising temperatures, evaporation increases and makes the land and soil more dry and prone to fires.
It is important to take caution when living in a city or town where there is a high fire rate.
Having an emergency fire kit can be life saving and is easy to get started. All you will need is water, food, a few pairs of clothing to change into, a jacket, flashlights, batteries, and blankets.
