Explain the 'how' and 'when' of wildfires by discussing how wildfires are created and that they tend to occur in the summer, fall and winter, when it is dry and there are high winds. Then explain the 'who' and 'where' of wildfires by defining what fire ecologists do and where wildfires occur, mostly in forests and places that have drought. Discuss what to do if you find yourself in a wildfire by discussing what to do before, during and after a wildfire. The first step for before a wildfire is to learn how to prevent wildfires. The best way to prevent wildfires is to not start them. The next steps are to create an escape route and to remove flammable things from your house. During a wildfire, be prepared to evacuate at any moment and keep your windows and doors closed. If you stay at home, wet your roof and property and save receipts. After a wildfire, gather basic supplies. Enter your house carefully and don't drink the water until authorities have said it is safe. Have students fill in the blanks with words from the word bank.
