Wildfire protection for your home
No home is fireproof, but you may help prepare it by taking the necessary precautions.
Here are some pointers to help you make your home and property more fire resistant:
Dead vegetation should be removed from plants, and lower branches should be cut from large trees.
Keep leaves and twigs out of gutters, roofs, and other outdoor areas.
Take off all of the window screens and attic vents.
Keep the firewood at least 30 feet from the house.
Roofing materials with a fire rating of Class A should be used (the highest).
Install metal angle flashing along the edge of the roof.
Boxed-in eaves with an open design (i.e., where rafter tails are visible).
Where the wood decking meets the siding, metal flashing should be put (if the siding is combustible).
