‘To protect my loved ones’
Scott, a youth worker from the Warm Springs Reservation, says, “There’s hope out there with this vaccination.” Check out this video where Scott shares his #MyVaccineReason:
Preparing to evacuate due to wildfire risk
We know hearing about a nearby wildfire can be frightening. Understanding what to do to increase your safety can help address that fear.
Whether you decide to evacuate or are asked to evacuate by state or local authorities, evacuate safely.
Be sure to bring:
- An emergency food and water supply.
- An emergency medicine supply. Make a plan to keep medications that need refrigeration cold.
- Emergency power sources for medical devices and flashlights (don’t forget extra batteries).
- Safety and personal items, including a face covering and hand sanitizer to protect against COVID. Remember: face coverings do not protect against wildfire smoke.
- Important documents, including medical documents, proof of vaccination, wills, passports and personal identification.
Are you traveling by car? Reduce smoke in your vehicle by closing your windows and vents and running your car’s air conditioner in recirculate mode. Plan a safe route at Trip Check.
