Wildfires can Cost You, Your Home and Your Life

This is a subject that I have written on before and many of you may have read about it.   Not too far from where I live there are two major wildfires, both have destroyed structures.  Some of these structures have belonged to preppers.

As I watch the wild fires in Idaho and other states, I am sure that the same has happened there.  Now imagine what these fires would be like after TEOTWAWKI without fire suppression.  The fires would be bigger and totally out of control.  If you live in an area that is likely to have wildfires, make your plans now.  Some of these fires travel so fast that if you were on foot you may not be able to escape.  The following are links to several articles that I have written on wildfires.

How to Protect Yourself From Wildland Fires.

Evacuating Your Home

Fire Shelters can Save Your Life

A while back, a gentleman showed me his bug out location of which he was extremely proud.  It was well hidden in the backcountry, but totally surrounded by thick dry bush and manzanita.  Both of which burn fast and hot.  In talking with him, fire was something he had not considered.

Now if you live in the swamps of Louisiana, this may not be a problem.  However many of us who live in rural or even urban areas may face this problem.  In a lawless situation, there will always be people who start fire either on purpose or by stupidity.   One thing I have found you can always count on is stupidity.

Even if your location survives the fire, how does it affect your water sources plant life and wild game?  Make plans for this possibility now.
