This is why I like where we live. In the country but fire is 10-15 minutes away. Ambulance another 5 minutes.

You have to plan that stuff. Our new house in Idaho is surrounded by farm land, but only 4 miles to a big regional health center.

I always felt safe taking my dad fishing at my place in Lassen county when he got older with health problems. Our little town on the lake has a volunteer fire department with a paramedic, and an airstrip. They get the helicopter there from susanville real quick. If you aren't too bad, they take you back to susanville, if bad, they fly straight to Reno. Pretty cool for being out in the national forest.

Tell them someone must have swapped in a Porsche engine.

Until you get the bill for a Medivac flight, if you don't have the separate coverage for it. My father-in-law was taken on a helicopter between two hospitals that are 15 miles apart because the surgeon he needed was at the other hospital. The listed cost of that 10 minute flight was $40,000. Yes, it potentially saved his life, but I mean really?

Good thinking. We also chose to live on the road that connects on both ends, as opposed to some of the local canyons that have only one outlet. There's one canyon that has two outlets, but they're parallel on both sides of a canyon. I really fear for the people in the Cull Canyon and Sunol areas. Long roads with one outlet. Cull is the worst since there are hundreds of homes with a single outlet. Are people going to run naked through the woods to escape the flames? I have no idea.

Not normal. That's where all the trouble starts.
