"We didn't think it would happen to us. If only we'd been better prepared."
What you do long before a wildfire strikes can help save your home. What you do during a wildfire can help save your life. And if you do lose your home, being prepared for the worst will make it easier to put your life back together.
Author and researcher Linda Masterson knows what it's like to flee a wall of flames in the middle of night, with just minutes to escape with her life and very little else. Her home in northern Colorado burned to the ground in the Crystal Fire in 2011. Now she's sifted through information, resources and expert advice from across the country to put together a practical handbook for homeowners who want to be better prepared if disaster strikes.
