Develop a wildfire action plan
The Anaheim Fire Department takes every precaution to help protect you and your property from wildfire.  However, the reality is that in a major wildfire, there will simply not be enough fire engines or firefighters to defend every home in the early stages of the incident.  This reality requires you to take personal responsibility for protecting yourself, your family, and your property.
