Ready, Set, Go for summer monsoons

Monsoon season often brings thunderstorms with heavy rain, flash flooding and lightning which can cause wildfires.

Prepare now so you know what actions may be needed when a major storm rolls in.

Develop a household emergency plan, and consider items you would need to take and routes you may need to travel in the event of an emergency evacuation.

In the event of an emergency, look for Ready, Set, Golinks to external site messages on social networks and in the news media.

Be READY: always be prepared for potential emergencies; get SET by maintaining awareness of events that may force evacuation; and GO, evacuate immediately as instructed by emergency authorities.

Scottsdale Fire is available to provide Emergency Preparedness/Ready Set Go presentations for neighborhoods, organizations and businesses. Schedule here.
