Is Your Home Prepared for Wildfire?

Is Your Home Prepared for Wildfire?

Learn how to reduce wildfire risks in the Home Ignition Zone (HIZ). 

Breakthrough research has shown the majority of homes destroyed by wildfire are first ignited by embers and small flames. Take steps to harden you home in the HIZ to better protect it from the threat of wildfire.

The HIZ includes three sub-zones:

  • Immediate Zone (0’ to 5’)
  • Intermediate Zone (5’ to 30’)
  • Extended Zone (30’ to 100’)
