Loose, dry brush is the primary fuel upon which wildfires feed and spread from one area to the next, destroying property and people’s lives in their wake.

Protect Your Home Against Wildfires Checklist
Currently, over 14,000 residential homes in California are at risk of being destroyed by wildfires. Don’t become a statistic. Follow our six-step guide to protect your home from the flames.
Clean Your Gutters
Keep your gutters debris-free. Dead leaves and branches can easily ignite. Use non-combustible gutter covers.
Install tempered-glass, multi-pane windows. Keep them closed when there is a wildfire alert.
Decrease Fence Fire Risks
Ensure your fences and gates are made from non-combustible materials. Burning fences can elevate your home’s risk.
Regularly Check Your Detectors
Properly working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors save lives!
Have Fire Extinguishers on Hand
Keep at least one fire extinguisher in your home to quickly put out flames.
Trim Your Trees
Trim back tree branches that hang too close to your home.
