Fire Smart Your Home
The wildfires over the past few years have demonstrated how important it is to protect your home from the event that a wildfire approaches the community. Protection is not something that is done when the fire is here, but starts weeks and months in advance to increase the chance that your home can survive a wildfire. You may be surprised it is a lot easier than you might think. View the video provided called Home Ignition Zone for ideas about what you can do to help protect your home.
