Emergency?

May/June Newsletter

Wildfire season is coming! And with that, we need to be prepared for it. Wildfires have become increasingly common in wildland/urban interface (WUI) areas as more people move to remote areas, creating an environment where fire can move readily between structures and vegetation. Our emergency response to these areas can be difficult. There is no guarantee that we can save all the homes and structures if a wildland fire occurs. It’s imperative that property owners in our WUI areas understand the risks and prepare appropriately.
The Home Ignition Zone (HIZ) includes the home and adjacent surroundings within 100-200 feet. The relationship between the home and all material surrounding the home, including neighboring homes, ultimately determines what treatments are required. The ignition potential of HIZ largely influences the effectiveness of protection during a wildfire. Our goal is to have homes prepared for wildfire by reducing the ignition potential before a fire occurs.
