Facebook: One way to reduce your home’s vulnerability to wildfire, is to create an ember-resistant zone under and around the footprint of a deck. This will reduce the likelihood of under-deck flame exposure. Refer to the Wildfire Home Retrofit Guide linked below to learn more about preparing your home for wildfire.

Facebook: It's recommended to not use your fence as a trellis. Dead vegetation can accumulate on the fence which provides kindling for embers. Plants can trap embers and ignite in flames, passing them onto the fence and onto a house. Learn more about preparing your property for wildfire in our Wildfire Home Retrofit Guide below.
