Fire safety tips for home

Updated: Jun 7, 2021

Things YOU can do to Protect your Home & Property

  • Create a “Defensible Space” – Remove all dry grass, brush, dead leaves & slash AT LEAST 30 FEET from your Home. Fire resistant landscaping is recommended.

  • Remove any and all branches overhanging or within 10 feet of your roof.

  • Cover your chimney/stovepipes with non-flammable screen (Spark Arrester) of ¼ inch or smaller mesh.

  • Any new construction or remodeling should be done with fire resistant materials, including siding and roofing.

  • Space trees and shrubs 10 feet apart. Reduce the number of trees in heavily wooded areas.

  • For trees taller than 18 feet, prune lower branches at least 6 feet off the ground to prevent fire from reaching the tops of trees.

  • Stack firewood and scrap piles at least 30 feet from your home and remove flammable vegetation within 10 feet of the piles.

  • Locate LPG tanks at least 30 feet from any structure and surround the tank with a 10 foot clearance around.

  • Maintain your “DEFENSIBLE SPACE.”
