Community leaders invited all residents to help them complete a risk assessment, looking at the structures and the landscapes surrounding the communities. This helped to prioritize work projects.
Everyone had a role to play.
Some people organized community wildfire projects while others worked on simple and low-cost actions to protect their homes from wildfire.
Working together and individually on prioritized work helped reduce structure-to-structure ignitions.
Fire mitigation is the responsibility of each and every homeowner living in the wildland urban interface.
Homeowners need to harden their structures to resist ember ignitions and remove excessive fuel loading to protect firefighters who are risking their lives to protect your home.
