Good Landscaping Crucial
Let Your Landscape Defend Your Property.
Trim grass on a regular basis up to 100 feet surrounding your home. Create defensible space by thinning trees and brush within 30 feet around your home.
Beyond 30 feet, remove dead wood, debris and low tree branches. Landscape your property with fire resistant plants and vegetation to prevent fire from spreading quickly.
Stack firewood at least 30 feet away from your home and other structures. Store flammable materials, liquids and solvents in metal containers outside the home, at least 30 feet away from structures and wooden fences.
