Making a Wildfire Safety Plan for Young People Home Alone in Otay Mesa

2/19/2020 (Permalink)

A wildfire has caught fire and is burning in a field. Wildfire season comes early to San Diego.

Did you know that only 21% of students interviewed in wildfire-prone regions know what to do if they are home alone when a wildfire breaks out? SERVPRO® of Otay Mesa wants San Ysidro families to know that having an evacuation plan in place for your loved ones to follow when you aren’t home can save lives. Here are some tips from the National Fire Prevention Association for developing a plan:

  • Work with a trusted neighbor close by who know your children and can evacuate them if you are not home to do so
  • Set up a schedule with other working parents in the neighborhood so that one is always at home and can make sure the children are safe
  • Pack a “Go Bag” with treasured items, water, food, prescriptions they can grab and leave with quickly
  • Practice together with their pets if time allows to crate them for removal
  • Have a designated contact, like an out of town family member programmed into their cell phone so you can find each other quickly

We hope you never need fire damage services, but if you do, SERVPRO of Otay Mesa wants to help. We are available 24 hours a day and our highly trained technicians have the specialized equipment necessary to safely clean and restore properties to pre-damage conditions in San Ysidro.
