Defensible space can make a significant difference during a wildfire, offering your home or business protection. Embers are the leading cause of home loss during a wildfire. They can travel up to three miles ahead of the large flame front.

Defensible space is the buffer you create between your home or business and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surrounds it. Items to consider are plants, landscape arrangement, and outdoor furniture. This gives embers or flames fewer options to latch onto and ignite.
