Individual homeowner self-assessment

Helpful tips:

Although this is a "self-assessment," we recommend having your neighbor perform the assessment on your home, and you do the same for their home. 

Don't get caught up with the points; there is no "bad grade". This assessment's purpose is to help you become aware of the fire hazards around your home.


Start with fixing things you can control (ie: cleaning your gutters) instead of being overwhelmed by the bigger, maybe impractical projects (ie: replacing the siding on your home).

This assessment could be performed every year, as wildfire risk reduction is an ongoing effort. It's not a one and done; risk reduction requires continuous maintenance.
