5 Things To Do Before A Wildfire:

  1. Harden your home by replacing flammable siding, roof and deck materials with non-combustible materials.
  2. Replace vent screens with 1/8" or smaller metal mesh.
  3. Clear brush from along your driveway to allow better access for emergency vehicles and make sure your address sign is clearly visible (e.g. reflective numbering).
  4. Clean roofs, gutters and decks (move flammable furniture, remove dead branches and pine needles).
  5. Move wood piles at lease 30 feet away from structures.
