WILDFIRE DAMAGE RESTORATION & PREVENTION

While wildfires can happen in any area with dry seasons and dense vegetation, the western US is especially prone to them. Summer is the worst time of year for wildfires, and rising temperatures, droughts, and inconsistent rainfall all contribute to a longer and more dangerous wildfire season. Combined with autumn offshore winds, wildfires can spread and cause immense damage.

 

Even when the wildfires die down, the hazards remain. Heat and smoke affect air quality, and there might still be flames or embers present during cleanup efforts. Wearing wildfire PPE as you return to a burned area will protect you from environmental dangers.
