Winter has come, and now that Game of Thrones is officially over, we can all get back to our normal lives and not have to worry about how the series will end (whether we like it or not). The year is almost half-way over, meaning summer is on the horizon. And for those of us who live in California, we know how dry things can get. The warm dry season is great for going to the beach, but can present unprecedented dangers. Fires have ravaged through California every year for the past several years, and although we'd like for this year to be different, no one can predict the future. For that reason, it is best to have a plan, and be fire ready in the case of an emergency.
Fires can be one of the most devastating events that can happen to your home. The damage is almost always irreversible, and can cause lasting effects on other areas of the home that were not burned. Smoke from fires contain particles that spread wide distances. Even if it didn't look like smoke was in a specific room or area, particles could have still traveled into those areas through the air.
