When individual property owners and entire communities provide the defense, as in defensible space, we can provide the offense. Living in communities that are vulnerable to wildfire requires you to be READY. In addition to creating defensible space and hardening your home, we encourage residents to have an emergency kit, have an evacuation plan and to sign up for emergency notifications on CodeRED.
