DRESS FOR SURVIVAL
What you wear can help protect you in a wildfire
What to Wear
Dress yourself and your family in clothes that will help protect from heat, flying embers and flames. Natural fabrics such as heavy denim, 100% cotton or pure wool are much better than synthetics no matter how hot it is.
Make sure to cover your entire body.
Synthetic fabrics like polyester can melt in contact with heat and will stick to your skin causing serious burns. Some synthetic clothing will ignite at much lower temperature than cotton.
Wildfire Evacuation Checklist
Remember If Your Clothing Catches Fire to Stop, Drop, and Roll!
