The district will be able to do “Firewise” type home assessments this fall and winter. 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 plan to do a minimum of 10 homes (forested and rangeland/rural urban interface). Contact us if you’d like a free home assessment!
