Protect your Home Ignition Zone from the threat of Wildfire.
” What is your Home Ignition Zone (HIZ)? – It’s the three area zones on your home property, which include the: Immediate Zone that is 0 to 5 feet around the home, the Intermediate Zone that is 5 to 30 feet and the Extended Zone that is the 30 to 100 feet zone or potentially further. Limiting the amount of flammable vegetation, choosing fire-resistant building materials and construction techniques, and periodically maintaining the areas within the Home Ignition Zone all help to increase the chances your home can survive a wildfire when exposed to embers and/or a surface fire.
Preparing your home against the threat of wildfire involves looking at both vegetation management and fire resistive construction. Furthermore, wildfire preparedness at the community level, also, requires that you are prepared in terms of emergency responder access, a disaster plan, and an annual insurance checkup. ”
