In this day and age, one must be prepared for anything.

The catastrophic wildfires we have faced down so far in our region, and as we continue to do so, it is something we have come to expect during the dry, summer months. That said, you are encouraged to continue to take caution to protect your families, homes, businesses, and communities. Congressman Dan Newhouse (R-Wa) is working to ensure our region receives the federal assistance we need to fight and manage these wildfires. Please find below a list of federal, state, and local resources to help keep you and your families safe from wildfires. As we continue to navigate this disaster, and others potentially down the road, we will work to ensure this list includes the most up-to-date information possible.
