Keep your roof clear of leaves, twigs, needles, and other debris. Don’t let overhanging branches come within less than 5 feet of your roof.

Keep all trees trimmed so that all foliage is 10+ feet away from your chimney. If the tree is larger than 18 feet, trim the lower branches so all foliage is more than 6 feet off the ground. For trees and shrubs shorter than 18 feet, remove all lower branches to 1/3 of their height. Keep the ground clear of all dead materials.

Keep all grass and native brush within 200 feet of your fence or shed at a height of 3 inches or less. For added protection, only install fire-resistant fencing on your property.

Keep your spread material at least 10 feet away from all roadways.
