Wildfires are a Risk in California
Stray embers can travel for a mile, and fire can jump from trees to roofs, so it’s important to reduce the risk of wildfires hitting a home.
There’s no way to guarantee that wildfires won’t blaze into residential or commercial areas, but there are ways to reduce the risk of such fires consuming your home.
CalFire, the Sierra Club, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) have several suggestions about risk reduction:
- Keep openings to the outside closed, including dog doors or cat flaps.
- Fire-resistant shutters are a great way to protect embers from landing on curtains or other flammable materials. Keep the shutters closed and locked when there are fires nearby.
- While wood fences, decks, or patios are attractive, they are combustible. Fiber cement and stucco are attractive and fire resistant.
- Don’t store wood on the porch. It’s worth a walk to keep the fireplace going.
- Keep dried vegetation and other combustible materials away from the house. Recommendations range from a clear perimeter of 30 to 100 feet around the house.
