Western states are more prone to fires
Western states are particularly prone to the dangers of wildfires.
Drought conditions that are common in Western states make it even more important to have fire prevention measures in place. Dry, brittle brush and extreme temperatures can turn a minor mishap into a raging blaze. But remember, these dangerous events are largely preventable. According to Cal Fire, 95% of wildfires are started by people. Most house fires can be prevented with the proper fire prevention measures. Heed these tips to help prevent fires:
- Maintain vehicles to avoid sparks
- Practice campfire safety to avoid house fires
- Have fire extinguishers and shovels ready for dousing
- Consider a spark arrester on equipment in fire-prone areas.
Across the United States, increasingly hot and dry conditions are making wildfires an issue for many Americans.
