Wildfire Assessments: What You Need to Know

The wildfire assessments provided by Allied Disaster Defense are essential for homeowners who live in the wildland-urban interface (WUI). These assessments help identify potential risks and vulnerabilities on your property and provide recommendations for reducing the risk of wildfire damage. In this blog post, we’ll cover everything you need to know about wildfire assessments, including what they are, how they work, and why they’re essential.

Our former wildland fire captains will evaluate your property’s vulnerability to wildfire damage. They’ll look at factors such as the proximity of your home to natural fuels, the type of vegetation around your home, and the condition of your home’s exterior. Based on this evaluation, they’ll provide you with a customized mitigation plan to help you reduce your risk of wildfire damage.

Some of the measures in your mitigation plan include:

  • Creating defensible space around your home
  • Installing fire-resistant materials
  • Using ember-resistant vents or mesh
  • Installing gutter guards
  • Applying fire retardant treatments to remaining trees and hillsides

Following the recommendations outlined in your mitigation plan, you can significantly reduce your risk of wildfire damage and protect your home and property. Contact Allied Disaster Defense today to learn more about our services and how we can help you protect your home.
