Emergency Preparedness

Be prepared for whatever life brings. The Woodland Fire Department offers information, tips and tools to keep your family, your home and your city safe.


In the event of fire, time is the biggest enemy. Every second counts! In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can turn into a major fire. A smoke alarm is the most important safety feature of your home. Properly installed, working smoke alarms provide the early warning you need to safely escape from a fire. A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out or containing a small fire. However, because fire grows and spreads so rapidly, the number one priority in a fire at home or at work is to get out safely. Have escape plans to get out of your home quickly!
