Defensible Space for Fire Management
Wildfires sweep across the Western United States during prolonged periods of heat and drought. Fires damage communities, cost millions in repairs, and take away precious lives. Since it’s impossible to prevent fires all together, it’s important to defend communities by building defensible space.
What is Defensible Space?
Excessive vegetation is a catalyst for wildfires. Some vegetation is more fire-prone than others, and the layout of the land also affects fire behavior. Defensible space is a buffer zone around communities that takes into account vegetation type and land layout. Clearing away excessive vegetation reduces risk of wildfire damage.
