Superintendant Haig said a plan helps you to know what you do if a fire reachesi your area, as well as staying on top of alerts. 
  
"Just so that you are aware, you are not caught off guard at the last minute, you are paying attention to the conditions around you," Superintendant Haig said. 
 
"That's the most things.
