First, I'd like to point out that this is coming from the perspective of someone living not too far from the most wildfire-prone area of the entire United States. When someone mentions being prepared for fires around here, we're not talking about barn or house fires. We're talking about wildfires that spread hundreds/thousands of feet in the matter of a few minutes and that you cannot outrun or get away from. We're talking about the need for preparing your home and property for a fire coming to you, as well as how to get out if it does. There is plenty of information about personal evacuation, but I attended a meeting last night where the I can best describe the speaker's job as a "horse environmentalist" and educates others on how to best care for their horses when taking the environment into account. Last night's subject was how to be fire-wise with horses, something that apparently does not receive a lot of attention in the US. Even living in the most wild-fire prone area of the US, it was surprising to realize how little I knew about what to do if my horses were threatened by a wildfire.
