Home and cabin owners
Properly preparing your home or cabin and community doesn’t completely guarantee you won’t incur fire damage, but it does reduce the risk. Make sure you have adequate insurance on your buildings and property.
Some FireSmart measures cost very little and help reduce your vulnerability to wildland fire. Others, like renovations and upgrades can be costly and time consuming, and require planning and a long-term commitment.
FireSmart focuses on what is realistic for you to achieve in order to limit the risk of wildfire to your home or cabin. Integrate FireSmart into your long term renovations and incorporate yard clean up to reduce your risk of damage from wildfire.
