Hazardous Fuels/Fuel Reduction

Home Fire Safety and Defensible Space: There are many things homeowners can and should do to prepare and protect their homes to survive a wildfire. Creating defensible space, managing vegetation and landscaping, using fire resistant construction materials, and properly storing firewood and other combustible materials are all important things homeowners can do to reduce the risk from wildfire.  Contact your local fire protection district or department to schedule a defensible space inspection.
