Sustainable and Fire SafE Landscapes provides guidelines for creating and maintaining fire-safe, environmentally-friendly landscapes in the wildland-urban interface

Find green business solutions
green business footprint for California sustainable environment SAFE (Sustainable and Fire SafE) Landscapes is developing guidelines for creating and maintaining fire-safe, environmentally-friendly landscapes in the wildland-urban interface that minimize the use and spread of invasive plants.

Fire safety in the wildland-urban interface starts in the home, observing good practices:

  • Avoid starting fires in and around the home;
  • Plan a good fire response strategy for your family;
  • Employ fire-resistant building materials and architectural features.
  • Beyond the home, develop a fire-resistant landscape where plants and hardscape are maintained to avoid easy fire transmission.
  • Establish a defensible space to reduce the risk of fire transmission to your property.

Fire is a part of the natural environment in Southern California. There is no way to completely ensure that your home will not be exposed to wildfire.

If you live in a high fire hazard severity zone in the wildland-urban interface, it is not a question of IF a fire will occur, but WHEN. Preparation for wildfire requires that you take responsibility for your safety, property and pets.

Maintain your property to reduce the risk of damage during a wildfire, and be fully prepared to evacuate.
