What to carry with you if you have to flee a wildfire

Residents in Boulder County are warned to prepare for probable evacuations Thursday after strong winds started several fires.

When the moment comes, here’s what you need know to be prepared.

As recommended by the Denver Office of Emergency Management, prepare a pack that includes the following items:

  • Medications
  • Important documents, including social security cards and birth certifications
  • At least two to three pairs of clothes, undergarments and socks
  • Cell phone, charger and a USB power bank
  • Cash in small bills
  • Jacket or sweater
  • Small blanket
  • Hand sanitizer and face coverings
  • Water and snacks

Evacuation tips

The National Weather Service points to these tips for evacuation:

  • “Take action immediately. Leave as soon as evacuation is recommended by fire officials to avoid being caught in fire, smoke or road congestion. A delay could cost your life!
  • “Take the intitiative to stay informed and aware. Listen to your radio, TV or alerts on your phone for announcements from law enforcement and emergency personnel.”
  • “Cover up to protect against heat and flying embers. Wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, heavy shoes/boots, cap, a face mask, goggles or glasses.”
  • “Ensure your emergency supply kit is in your vehicle.”
  • “Enact your evacuation plan that includes the route you’ll take and designated emergency meeting location outside the fire or hazard area.”

Tulsa Pastor Michael Todd rubbed spit on a followers face

Tulsa Pastor Michael Todd rubbed spit on a churchgoer's face

Tulsa Pastor Michael Todd rubbed spit on a followers face

One of Oklahoma’s most prominent pastors went a little too literal in his sermon this weekend, pitching a vision of 2022 in order to make his point.

Patronizing murmurs from his Tulsa-based Transformation Church congregation, Michael Todd’s sermon on Sunday was webcast online for those who couldn’t make it in person. A parishioner, who was volunteering for the yuck fest, ended his mouth covered in spit.

And to make matters worst, he simply stood there and took it!! Here’s a video of it happening — it’s kind of bizarre because Mike builds it up so forcefully.

He did this to illustrate his comparison of how “receiving vision from God might get nasty.” it appears. Even though we’ll let him do the explanation since it doesn’t make a lot of sense to us, it appears he’s saying… occasionally you’ll have to wade through some muck to achieve God’s plan. 

Even as the crowd screams in terror at his bizarre action, MT totally leans into it, saying that’s exactly the response one will get for accepting God’s call, no matter how counterintuitive it might feel… like having someone smear some loogies or spit all over your face.

When it comes to internet ridicule, of course, he’s getting the lion’s share of attention. As a result of the epidemic, obviously.

Gigantic fire erupted at a chemical plant in New Jersey

An 11-alarm fire broke out Friday night in Passaic, New Jersey. The three-story structure started fire at 8:30 p.m., according to CBS New York.

According to a fire officer questioned by Passaic Mayor Hector Carlos Lora, roughly 200 firemen from 11 companies had arrived to the location. The fire has not yet reached the main component of the chlorine facility, according to Passaic Fire Chief Patrick Trentacost Sr.

Lora said large evacuations may be required if the fire reaches the plant’s core, and officials are “constantly monitoring” its progress. He praised the “heroic” efforts of firefighters who have so far kept the fire from reaching the plant’s core.

Trentacost claimed “heavy, heavy smoke” and flames were in the roof and higher stories. The cause of the fire is unknown.

Lora said one fireman was hospitalised with an unknown ailment, but no further injuries were recorded.

Lora alerted local neighbours to stay away from the “extremely serious” fire on Facebook Live. Residents of New York City were advised they could see or smell smoke from the incident.

One New Yorker said she left the neighbourhood to escape any smells. “We don’t know if the fumes will return or if there will be any long-term repercussions on the lungs. So it’s terrifying “stated.

Governor Phil Murphy encouraged residents to “stay safe” as firefighters fought the wildfire. “If you live nearby, keep your windows closed,” he said. “Praying for the safety of our first responders on the scene.”

Workers and people in the area were worried about exposure to harmful vapours.

There had not yet been any explosions in the chemical storage area, but Lora reported hearing them, which indicated the fire was getting close.

Residents in the immediate vicinity of the conflagration were ordered to leave their homes. Some other people were told to keep their windows closed, as well.
