Ready Set go Logo

Before a wildfire threatens your home, create defensible space by choosing fire safe plants and landscaping, and clearing flammable vegetation. Harden your home with fire-safe construction materials and methods.

Set Go

 

Being Ready for wildfire starts with maintaining an adequate defensible space and by hardening your home by using fire resistant building materials. Defensible space is the buffer you create by removing dead plants, grass and weeds. This buffer helps to keep the fire away from your home. Hardening your home means using construction materials that can help your home withstand flying embers finding weak spots in the construction, which can result in your house catching fire. It takes the combination of both Defensible space and the hardening of your home to really give your house the best chance of surviving a wildfire.
