Preparing homes for wildfire
There are methods for homeowners to prepare their homes to withstand ember attacks and minimize the likelihood of flames or surface fire touching the home or any attachments.
Firewise USA®, sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association, is a national program that encourages homeowners and communities to take action to reduce their wildfire risk. These actions, such as creating and maintaining defensible space, should happen before a wildfire occurs. These recognized Firewise USA® Sites have an on-going commitment toward reducing their overall wildfire risk.
