To protect your home from potential wildfires…
- Create Defensible Space by eliminating weeds and noxious vegetation.
- Defensible space, in the context of fire control, is a natural and/or landscaped area, around a structure that has been maintained and designed to reduce fire danger. This practice is sometimes called Fire Scaping.
- A noxious weed, harmful weed or injurious weed is a weed that has been designated by an agricultural authority as one that is injurious to agricultural or horticultural crops, natural habitats or ecosystems, or humans or livestock. Most noxious weeds have been introduced into an ecosystem by ignorance, mismanagement, or accident.
- Remove dead trees and prune low-hanging branches.
- Cut grass and weeds and remove debris regularly.
- Relocate woodpiles and leftover building materials away from structures.
- Keep your roof and yard clean of pine needles, leaves, and debris.
