Fire Season is Approaching!
As we enter fire season in Southern California, property owners in high risk areas must take additional precautions to prevent bushfires. These simple tasks can potentially save lives and hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of damage.
Perform regular yard maintenance such as mowing the grass, cleaning out dried leaves and weeds (don’t forget the gutters & roofs!), and trimming low branches from any surrounding trees. In addition, you’ll need to be sure to dispose of this natural material waste properly. During fire season, you’ll also want to relocate any flammable items away from your home. This includes wood piles, wooden crates, and outdoor garden furniture.
In addition to taking physical precautions, it is also vital that everyone in the household knows fire safety and children are taught to call 911 to report a large fire.
