I would second with Nail, however, installing fire resistance features also would be an alternative in addition to use pre-cast concrete. The current fire resistance code is suitable for unwild fire that's originated due to material burning or not installing fire sprinklers in the structures, but the code might not be sufficient in this case of wildfire and can cause devastation. It sounds what you're looking for is the primary and the secondary means to escape from the wildfire. Let us include that wildfire rate is a bit faster than your walking rate, so, it would be better to run. My suggestion is that it's important to change wild lands to domestic by clean up the trees and the bushes before become residential area.
