IN YOUR YARD
Defensible space is the buffer that you are required to create on your property between your home and any combustible material that may surround it. Creating this buffer requires the purposeful selection, location, and maintenance of vegetation, including trees, shrubs, brush, and other plants. If you reside within an area that is at high risk of wildfires, maintaining defensible space should be part of your annual preparedness. This will give your home a better chance of survival in case of a wildfire and can potentially reduce the spread of fire.
