Ready, Set, Go! Program
Travis County ESD #4 is implementing the
Ready, Set, Go! program.
The program is a three-step process that teaches homeowners to create their own action plan of preparedness, have situational awareness and leave early in the event of a fire--all with the goal of significantly increasing the safety of residents and firefighters.
The three-step process is easy to remember and implement:
- Ready. Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildland fire so your home is ready in case of fire. Create a defensible space by clearing brush away from your home. Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safety construction measures. Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe spot. Plan escape routes. Make sure all those residing within the home know the plan of action.
- Set - Act immediately. Pack your vehicle with your emergency items. Stay aware of the latest news and information on the fire from local media and your local fire department.
- Go - Leave early! Follow your personal action plan. Doing so will not only support your safety, but will allow firefighters to best maneuver resources to combat the fire.
