Living with Fire in Sonoma County

In light of the devastating wildland fire season that is currently upon us here in Northern California, we wanted to take a minute to make sure our residents are aware of fire safety measures that can be taken before a wildland fire occurs. Being prepared in the event of a wildland fire is just as important as being prepared in the event of an earthquake.  Keeping a defensible space around your home not only helps responding firefighters protect your home, but may also be the deciding factor of whether they can save your home or must move on to the next one that they know they can defend. Scary, but true.


Here is a link from FireSafe Sonoma that explains defensible space for all property types.   http://www.firesafesonoma.org/main/sites/default/files/living_with_fire.pdf
