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.
