Preparedness is the key
The catastrophic fire events in North Central Washington over the last few weeks have destroyed entire towns and shaken communities across the state. While firefighters are still battling the blazes, and fire continues to threaten homes and communities, the Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition takes this opportunity to remind residents to prepare themselves for evacuation and their properties for wildfire.

"Fires are a natural occurrence in North Central Washington. We can improve the defensibility of our homes, increase the safety of ourselves and first responders, and increase the efficiency of evacuations," says Annie Schmidt, Director of the Chumstick Coalition. "It is not too late to prepare and homeowners can take action now that will make a difference."
