Reduce Wildfire Risks up to 75%

Small changes to your home can reduce wildfire risk by up to 40%, and structural and vegetation improvements combined can lower wildfire risk by up to 75%. Furthermore, losses prevented can be much bigger (e.g. 5 times greater) when compared to a highly flammable environment. Some examples of home hardening solutions that will prevent your home from burning from the inside out is ember resistant vents. A lot of the times, the exterior build of the house is fire-resistant, like stucco, but the embers fly through the vents and causes the home to burn from the inside out. A simple addition of ember resistant vents significantly improves the chances of your home surviving the wildfires. 

A combination of home hardening solutions, application of long-term fire retardant and reduction of fuel through vegetation management is the key to reducing wildfire risks at your property. Our team of experts can conduct a risk assessment to ensure your property is held at the highest standard from CALFire and the NFPA.

Wildfire Risk Assessment

An experienced firefighter and Wildfire Prevention Specialist will provide a personalized wildfire hazard assessment with specific recommendations to help protect the home in the event of a wildfire.
Ember Resistant Vents

Home Hardening

Research around wildfires points to embers as the primary way most homes ignite in wildfires. Embers can ignite debris in gutters and enter attic spaces. By installing ember-resistant vents, and gutter guards, homeowners prepare their homes to withstand ember attacks.

Long-Term Fire Retardant

This clear, long term fire retardant is the same that is dropped by air tankers without the red dye. Once PHOS-CHEK has been applied to vegetation, it’s rendered non-flammable and removed only by significant rainfall.

Home Hardening and Vegetation Management

Better protect your home from embers with home hardening features such as ember resistant vents, gutter guards and enclosed eaves. Protect your home by zone with vegetation management, starting with the Immediate Zone (0-5′). Reducing and removing continuous vegetation on the property will interrupt the fire’s pathway to the home.

Our Process:

The wildfire risk assessment focus on:
▪ Vulnerability of homes to embers, surface fire, and crown fire
▪ Condition of the structures themselves
▪ Immediate hazards within the Home Ignition Zone on individual properties
▪ Concerns presented by common/open space areas or adjacent public lands


Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the Fire Retardant last?

The Long Term Fire Retardant (LTR) will last throughout the rain season but generally half an inch of heavy rain is the standard of our retardant. This will need to be reapplied regularly for optimal use.

Is the Fire Retardant safe to use around vegetation?

Yes! The LTR is actually a fertilizer and safe to use around vegetation. 

Where do you spray the Fire Retardant?

Depending on your property, generally we want to spray the first 0-30 feet (the intermediate zone) of your home. With larger properties with a lot of vegetation, we recommend vegetation management and additional application of fire retardants up to 100 feet of the property.

Is the Fire Retardant safe for children, animals and pets?

Yes! The LTR is non-hazardous and poses no risk to humans, vegetation or animals/pets. 

Do you spray Fire Retardant onto the home itself?

We spray within the first 5 feet of the home onto any vegetation that may pose a threat. The home itself should be built with fire resistant material and other home hardening solutions like ember proof vent guards and gutter guards. We conduct a home risk assessment to provide you with the best plan of action all around.

Can I water my plants when fire retardant is applied?

We recommend drip hoses or drip lines to water the roots without washing off the retardants.

What is defensible space?

Defensible space is a buffer between your home and the vegetation that surrounds it. This helps to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and provides firefighters a safe area to defend your home.

What is home hardening?

Flying embers from a wildfire can destroy homes up to a mile away. Home hardening is the process of protecting openings and using ember-resistant materials such as fire-resistant vents, gutter guards and double pane window glass to increase the likelihood of survival when wildfire strikes.

Why is the Fire Retardant not pink like the ones dropped off airplanes?

The fire retardant we utilize is Phos Chek, which is the same ones dropped off the airplanes without the pink dye. The pink dye is for the fire fighting teams to see and locate which areas have fire retardants applied. If it was clear, the fire team will have a hard time distinguishing which areas have fire retardants applied. 

How do I schedule an on-site assessment?

You can call us with the number on this website or fill out any form. Our team will then reach out to confirm a day and time our fire experts can conduct a risk assessment at your property.
