How can I keep my property fire safe?

Be proactive. Create 100 feet of “defensible space,” the natural and landscaped area around a structure that has been maintained and designed to reduce fire danger. Remove dead trees, especially around your home. Maintain trees by thinning overgrown trees and watering as necessary. Plant a diversity of tree species, including drought tolerant species of trees native to the area.
