Wildfires happen.  To ensure you have the best chance of surviving a wildfire – protect your home with defensible space – that creates a 30 foot perimeter around your home.  Clean up any combustibles and yard debris before fire season.  Debris can be taken to the landfill or you can get a burn permit at Fire Management.  Remember not to burn on windy days – and do it in the morning, before temperatures heat up.  This is one thing you can do to be prepared for wildfire season.
