Clothing - Cotton or Wool (Leather for Shoes and Gloves)

May contain: apparel, clothing, shoe, and footwear

Pack these or have them ready-to-go in a designated spot. Choose clothes that can withstand embers - not polyester or nylon! Yyou want something that will not melt on contact with embers. Leather gloves might sound strange but, if you have a lot of embers falling, they can be useful for brushing them off your clothing. Hats are helpful for protecting your face. Remember, embers often fall up to a mile away from the fire and sometimes much farther. In the Paradise fire, the ember field was 5 miles long!
