Is your property in a condition that could survive a wildfire?
Could firefighters easily get to a wildfire on your property?
If the answer to these questions is no or I don’t know, your property may be at high risk for a wildfire, which would have real financial consequences for you, your family, and your neighbors, as well as for the long-term health of your watershed and the area’s ecology. The degree of wildfire risk depends on both the probability of an ignition (for example, from lightning or human activity) and the potential for damage or harm (such as loss of trees, homes, or even lives). Recognizing that you may have a high wildfire risk is the first step in doing something about it.
