Investing in wildfire preparedness works. Check out this wildfire risk reduction success from a FEMA excerpt from Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network.
“Some of the wildfire mitigation measures he took during construction and maintained over the years to make his home fire-resilient included:
A well-maintained, simple Class A metal roof.
A non-combustible zone (3-5 feet wide) around the outside of the home that helped prevent embers from landing in close-by vegetation.
Pruned trees and low-growing cactus and succulents.
Boxed-in or soffited eaves with venting located at the outside edge. This makes ember intrusion more difficult.
Well-maintained stucco siding.
Accessible water and hoses labeled with reflective signs for firefighters.”
