Reduce Your Wildfire Risk

Defending against wildfire is everybody’s responsibility. The work you do on your property goes beyond reducing your own risk; it also impacts your neighbors. Your efforts to mitigate your property ahead of time will improve fire fighter safety in the event of a wildfire. We recognize that mitigation work does not guarantee the survivability of a structure. However, if homeowners follow these guidelines, we can significantly reduce wildfire risk. Thank you for working together and "Sharing the Responsibility."  -- Brett Lacey, Fire Marshal
