(OPEN):
IF YOU LIVE IN AN AREA THAT'S AT HIGH RISK FOR WILDLAND-FIRES, IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO PREPARE.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO CHIEF RHODA MAE KERR--PRESIDENT OF THE "INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FIRE-CHIEFS"...

(KERR):
"
FIRE-SEASON IS A YEAR-ROUND REALITY, FOR MANY AREAS, NATIONWIDE.  THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY NOW--TO PROTECT YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY, AND YOUR PROPERTY.  YOU CAN PREPARE FOR WILDLAND-FIRES BY CREATING DEFENSIBLE SPACE--THROUGH CLEARING BRUSH AND OTHER FLAMMABLE DEBRIS AWAY FROM YOUR HOME.  FIRE-RESISTANT LANDSCAPING, AND FIRE-SAFE CONSTRUCTION-MEASURES, SHOULD ALSO BE USED--TO BETTER HARDEN YOUR HOME AND PROPERTY.  IN ADDITION, YOU SHOULD CREATE A PERSONAL WILDLAND-FIRE ACTION-PLAN THAT INVOLVES ASSEMBLING BOTH EMERGENCY-SUPPLIES AND IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS--AS WELL AS PLANNING MULTIPLE ESCAPE-ROUTES.  YOU SHOULD ALSO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IN YOUR HOME KNOWS THIS PLAN-OF-ACTION--AND PRACTICES IT REGULARLY.  WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO BE 'READY' WITH PREPAREDNESS-UNDERSTANDING; TO BE 'SET' WITH SITUATIONAL AWARENESS, WHEN FIRE THREATENS; AND TO 'GO' EARLY, WHEN A FIRE STARTS.  YOU SHOULD ALSO MEET WITH THE LOCAL FIRE-DEPARTMENT, WELL AHEAD OF TIME--TO BECOME FAMILIAR WITH ITS COMMUNITY WILDLAND-FIRE READINESS-PLANS, AND TO MAKE SURE THAT IT'S A MEMBER OF THE 'READY, SET, GO!'-PROGRAM."
