There are three zones around your home, each requiring a different level of fire prevention safety. Here are just a few of the ways you can address each zone:

Zone 1:  0 to 5 ft

  • Landscape your property using noncombustible materials like rock, cement, sand, stone pavers, gravel or dirt.
  • Clear your roof and rain gutters of any leaves or needles.
  • Keep tree branches 10 feet away from your chimney and remove any dead branches that are on top of or touching your roof.

Zone 2:  5 to 30 ft

  • Avoid extensive use of mulch.
  • Regularly inspect the foliage around your home and remove any dead plants, grass, or weeds.
  • Keep all wood piles and gas or propane tanks outside of the home.

Zone 3:  30 – 100 ft

  • Never allow your grass to grow higher than 4 inches.
  • Leave spaces between grass, shrubs, and trees.
  • Opt for low-growing landscaping like plants, vegetables, succulents, flowers, and grass.
