Home Ignition Zone Assessments
The district will be able to do “Firewise” type home assessments all year long. Research around home destruction vs. home survival in wildfires point to embers and small flames as the main way that most homes ignite in wildfires. There are procedures for homeowners to prepare their homes to withstand ember attacks and minimize the likelihood of flames or surface fire reaching the home or any attachments. ACCD will do home located in forested and rangeland/rural urban interface areas. There is no better time than NOW to prepare your home and property. Contact us if you’d like a free home assessment!
