Tips to help protect your home! - August 18, 2015
Summer came earlier than normal this year and has created drier conditions than normal. The 2015 fire season started months early and has left more devastation compared to previous years.
No matter what amount of snowfall, rain or weather conditions Mother Nature decides to provide, there are a few things that you can do to help protect your property and home. This time of year is always scary knowing that it’s out of your control if a fire sweeps in or not, but there are a few things that you can do to help save your property.
Protect your home Year Around:
- Maintain a 100-foot clear zone around your home. It’s recommended to have a minimum of 30 feet. If you have the ability to have more, create a larger buffer.
- Keep landscape pruned and off the ground. If possible cut all vegetation to be 10 feet above the ground. Remove any dead or dying trees.
- Add a wildfire sprinkler system
- Update old roofs to shingles with asphalt composite or a metal roof.
- Keep your drive ways or pathways covered with gravel, rock, brick, or other nonflammable substances.
- Move and keep woodpiles at least 100 feet away from your home. If on a hillside, keep the piles on the uphill side.
- Mow grass and fields regularly, and keep it trimmed about 4 inches in height.
- Remove any access debris from or below decks and porches.
- Enclose all eaves and overhangs.
- Make your address visible from the road. This will help firefighters and crews in case of an emergency.
Protect your home when a Wildfire is in the area:
- Move all items that will burn away from your home. Put them in storage or outside of your defensible area. (Items: lawn furniture, barbecues, tarp coverings, etc.)
- Shut off all natural gas, propane or fuel oil supplies at the source.
- Remove debris from rain gutters and roof.
- Remove any dead or dying trees and if possible, trim other trees and vegetation up to 10 feet above the ground.
- Clear vegetation around fire hydrants, cisterns, propane tanks, etc.
- Relocate all animals from the property to safe housing until the threat has passed.
- Connect garden hoses. Fill any pools, hot tubs, garbage cans, tubs or other large containers for water.
- Disconnect any automatic garage door openers but keep maintaining them for manual operation.
- Place lawn sprinklers on the roof, around the property and keep any vegetation around the home wet.
- Crate and pack up any “non-replaceable” items such as photos and important documents into a quick grab box.
