The first step in preparing your home against the dangers of wildfire is to conduct an assessment of hazards on and around your home that weaken its total defense against wildfires. Home Assessments are mostly conducted by your local fire protection professionals, however any personnel within local organizations or natural resource professional appropriately trained can provide guidance and consultation to help you conduct your own assessment.
Home Assessments are focused on two primary and distinct areas; Home Harding and Defensible Space. Home Hardening is the focus on the materials on the house as well as barriers to prevent embers from penetrating your house. Defensible Space is the focus on a perimeter around your home and other structures.
Kozar Tree Werks can help you conduct an assessment of your home’s Defensible Space and address the findings regarding fuel sources.
