Preparing for wildfire season


Wildfires are becoming increasingly more common with climate change, and they cause major hazards for both people and businesses. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the extent of areas burned by wildfires has been increasing since the 1980s, with the largest increases occurring in the spring and summer months. In addition, the peak of wildfire season is occurring earlier than ever. This means it’s even more important now to be proactive with your wildfire safety approach in order to protect the health and safety of your employees.
