Wildfire Mitigation Tool Cache

The power is in your hands!

A home’s vulnerability to airborne embers, surface fires, and crown fires is determined by the amount of hazardous (flammable) fuels present within 30 ft of the home. 

Homeowners must take the initiative to protect their property and neighborhoods before a wildfire occurs. There are simple steps you can take to reduce hazardous fuels around your home.
