Yesterday was a bad day in fire season world here in Southwest Montana – as another wildfire started between Four Corners & Norris.  Early reports are saying it was human caused, and that as of this morning it has burned 200 – 300 acres. I think this is a good time to go over basic fire safetly tips.  I will be completely truthful, I myself was missing one key item on the list provided by the Bozeman Fire Department.  We got the house painted recently and haven’t yet put the numbers back up.  The house would be unrecognizable by emergency personal. Take a minute and go over these tips! According to the Bozeman Firefighters, here are some things to keep in mind!

  • Contact your local fire department, health department, or forestry office for information on fire laws.
  • Make sure that fire vehicles can get to your home. Clearly mark all driveway entrances and display your name and address.
  • Report hazardous conditions that could cause a wildfire.
  • Teach children about fire safety. Keep matches out of their reach.
  • Post fire emergency telephone numbers.
  • Ensure adequate accessibility by large fire vehicles to your property.
  • Plan several escape routes away from your home – by car and by foot.
  • Talk to your neighbors about wildfire safety. Plan how the neighborhood could work together after a wildfire. Make a list of your neighbors’ skills such as medical or technical. Consider how you could help neighbors who have special needs such as elderly or disabled persons. Make plans to take care of children who may be on their own if parents can’t get home.
