Creating Defensible Space in Wildland Urban Interface Environments

CAL FIRE’s Ready Set Go Video

With another devasting California wildfire season in full effect, with a tragic, rising death toll, a growing loss of homes and property, and the promise of more dangerous weather conditions on the way, CAL FIRE recently posted their “Ready Set Go Video,” offering tips and instructions on creating defensible space around homes and property. Creating these defensible spaces, in the wildland urban interface, not only has the possibility of protecting structures from wildfires, it also provides a safer working zone for firefighters risking their lives.
