Fire Protection Tips for Mission Valley Homeowners

SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants Mission Valley residents to be safe and prepared for wildfire season this year. The San Diego County website offers information on ways to protect your home from fire:

  • Existing trees and large shrubs should be pruned by cutting off any branches up to 6 feet above the ground to prevent ground fires from spreading upwards into trees.
  • For fire truck access, remove vegetation within 10 feet of each side of your driveway.
  • Remove any tree limbs within 10 feet of your chimney.
  • Work with your neighbors to clear common areas between houses.
  • Avoid planting trees under or near electrical lines.
  • Any removed trees may be chipped and left on your property if they don’t present a fire hazard. Contact your local fire agency to find out how to do this.
  • Don’t forget to legally dispose of all your cut vegetation. You may contact your local landfill to inquire about green waste recycling.
  • Stack firewood and scrap woodpiles at least 50 feet from any structure and clear away any combustible vegetation within 10 feet of the piles.
  • Check and clean your roofs and gutters on all structures several times during the spring, summer, and fall to remove debris that can easily ignite from a spark.

  • TRIM OR REMOVE DEAD, DAMAGED, OR ROTTING TREES AND LIMBS

High winds can cause trees and branches to fall. Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed on a regular basis. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.

  • SECURE OBJECTS OUTSIDE THE HOME Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home. Secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.
  • SECURE FENCING, PORCHES, CANOPIES, AND SHEDS

Have them inspected and make sure they are firmly attached and in sound structural condition. Secure any parts of fencing that appear weak or loose.
