In 2017, nearly 3,000 wildfires raged across the U.S. and more than 4,600 people died in the process.
The United States experienced its worst wildfire season since 2005, with more than 3,100 wildfires in October alone, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
The fires have destroyed more than 1.3 million structures and killed more than 11,000 people.
The United States also experienced its third-worst wildfire season in a decade.
There were 2,637 wildfires across the country in 2016, which was the worst year since 2011, according the National Fire Protection Association.
The wildfire season peaked in June, and the number of fires increased dramatically by July.
The U.N. predicts that wildfires in the United States will reach a record 5.3 billion hectares in 2020, which is nearly one-third of the land area of the world’s major landmasses.
The U.K., Australia and Canada are also expected to be among the highest-risk countries for wildfires in 2020.
There are many ways to help yourself and others out during a wildfire.
First and foremost, you need to know what to look out for.
If you see flames, be ready to evacuate.
Firefighters often use smoke bombs and water hoses to try to extinguish fires, but those can be dangerous and should only be used in emergency situations.
The safest and most effective way to extinguishing fires is to use water.
There are also some other tips you can use to help keep your family safe during a fire.
Don’t leave any children unattended.
There is a lot of water that is being lost from wildfires, and it is very dangerous to leave your children at home without them, according an American Red Cross spokesperson.
If possible, get them out of the area and put them in safe, portable locations.
You should also stay in the area until the fire is out.
You should also wear a hat and cover your face when you go outside to protect your eyes and lungs from smoke.
If you have a pet, do not leave it unattended in the middle of a fire or it could spread the fire to other pets.
The American Red Collar Association recommends keeping your pet’s collar, collar pins, leash, leash clip and other personal belongings inside your home when you are away from home.
You can also try to keep pets in a crate or container.
A pet crate or box will keep pets safe and warm, and can be a good way to get them used to living outdoors.
Another important tip is to not let pets out of your home during fires.
If they are outside, they could spread fire to your home, especially if you are the only one who is staying there.
The pets will have an easier time staying out of harm’s way if you leave them alone.
If a fire burns through your home or a family member’s home, you should immediately call 911 and the National Incident Management System.
Emergency responders will be able to take you and your family members to safe places.
If there is an active wildfire in your neighborhood, you can call 911 if there is a risk to your family.
The National Weather Service is working closely with the National Guard to help with public safety during wildfires.
You can reach them at 800-422-7232.
