What You Need to Know About Wildfires
Wildfires are the number one summer-time natural disaster. Because of high temperatures in the summer, wildfires are common. Since the year 2000, an annual average of70,600 wildfires burn approximately 7.0 million acres every year.
Wildfires appear randomly and dangerously fast. The smoke from these fires can have a major impact on your health. Wildfire smoke can cause heart and lung problems and isestimated to kill approximately 500 elderly people in the United States every year.
Power outages are common before, during, and after wildfires. It is a good idea to have a power generator as a backup power supply.
