Depending on where you’re located, you may be more prepared than others for the danger that summer heat can bring. Looking back on the last summer of 2020 and the many wildfire natural disasters that erupted worldwide, it’s top of mind as we approach warmer months.
It doesn’t seem to matter as much how the fire started once it finally ends, right? At least that’s how California citizens felt as they picked up the pieces of their once beautiful scenery and had to begin again. Although the reason a wildfire starts is essential, it’s important to remember that fires are often exacerbated by nature’s dry and hot atmosphere during the summer.
Global warming has heavily impacted the earth’s temperature and air quality over the last century. Fires are inevitably at risk of being stronger and more destructive with a much longer-lasting impact. As a society, we tend to discern every recent disaster as the “worst” or “most dramatic” we’ve seen. As said by the wise philosopher Anais Nin, “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” By preparing before a disaster and having a plan for after, we can foresee unfortunate events more proactively. StallionRents is known for being a quick go-to resource for so many during the aftermath of disasters. We believe preparation is critical if you’re looking to minimize the time it takes to get your business or life back to normal in the wake
There’s only so much that can be done for uninhabited land or forest areas, but industrial and suburban areas can take precautions so that if the fire spreads, the damage is minimized. The organization Project Wildfire mentions in its tips for business preparedness to follow OSHA’s required Emergency Action plan. This plan is required for businesses of more than ten employees. To enhance the importance of a plan of action, consider the almost 11,000 structures destroyed by the 2020 California fires alone. This plan encompasses both houses and other operational structures.
