Defensible Spaces: Prevent Wild Fires

With the summer heat kicking in, wildfires are a dangerous possibility. Creating defensible spaces to meet fire codes will ensure your property is safer. Maintaining a defensible fire space around structures is not only required but essential to protect your home and surrounding homes.

The San Diego County defines a defensible space as: "the area around a structure where combustible vegetation that can spread fire has been cleared, reduced or replaced. This space acts as a barrier between a structure and an advancing fire" (SD County).  The requirement is to clear combustible vegetation in a 100-foot radius from any structure.

 

Recently our company provided a weed abatement service to create a defensible space. A weed abatement consists of removing plants, grasses, etc that pose a fire hazard to occupied or vacant structures. Through this process the defensible space around structures is made and thus significantly reducing the risk of a wildfire. 

 

 

Here are some before and after pictures of a typical weed abatement service.
