Defensible Space for Fire Prevention in San Diego?
Fire Season in San Diego
The backyard in this picture is a fire waiting to happen. Once vegetation dies, like the dead grasses in this picture, they become easy fuel for any wayward spark or ember. Dry weather combined with combustible organic materials like fallen leaves, dead grasses, and even outdoor patio furniture cushions can be great fuel for fires. You can protect your home from fire damage by creating defensible space around your structures. SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW has seen the destruction that fire can cause to property and offers these tips for creating a defensible space around your property from the County of San Diego and the National Fire Protection Association:
- Clear combustible vegetation in a 100-foot radius from any structure
- Replace mulch with noncombustible mulch products like rock
- Keep rain gutters free of debris and use metal rain gutters
- Implement a maintenance strategy to keep the zone clear of dead plant materials
