Wildfire Risk Reduction
With Chief Walkowski
Each year, wildland fires consume homes in the wildland-urban interface which are defined as areas where homes are built near or among lands prone to wildland fire. Studies show that as many as 80 percent of homes lost to wildland fire may have been saved if brush around the homes were cleared and defensible space created around structures. There is no better time than now to improve your resilience to wildfire by preparing and educating your family, friends and neighbors.
