People have died in the Carr fire in California, and in the case of civilians, it didn’t have to happen. Personalities don’t change when there’s a fire, hurricane, earthquake, etc. Some are resourceful, but many are not. The problem with those who don’t take responsibility for themselves and their children and pets is that they drain the resources of first responders. If you wait until the fire fighters are knocking on your door, it’s probably too late to leave, or certainly to make intelligent decisions about what you’ll take. Plan ahead and you’ll be in better shape.
