Perform Commonly Recommended Wildfire Prevention Services to Reduce Wildfire Risk
Wildfires can be devastating to communities and homeowners, causing damage to property, loss of personal belongings, and even loss of life. At Allied Disaster Defense, we understand the importance of preparing for and protecting against the potential risks of wildfire. That’s why we offer comprehensive wildfire insurance assistance services to help our clients secure the coverage they need to protect their homes and families.
Our services include:
- Wildfire Risk Assessment: One of the first steps in protecting your home from wildfire is assessing the property for potential risks. Our experts will visit your property to identify areas of concern and provide recommendations for mitigation measures, such as clearing brush, creating defensible space, and updating landscaping.
- Creating defensible space: This means clearing brush, dead trees, and other flammable materials from around your home and property. This can help slow the spread of a wildfire and make it easier for firefighters to protect your home.
- Updating landscaping: Using fire-resistant plants and materials in your landscaping can help reduce the risk of wildfire. This includes choosing drought-tolerant plants, which are less likely to dry out and become fuel for a fire.
- Installing fire-resistant building materials: Using materials such as fire-rated roofs, fire-resistant siding, ember-resistant vents, gutter guards, and double-paned windows can help protect your home from wildfire.
- Having a fire-safety plan in place: Having a plan in place for evacuation and what to do in case of a wildfire.
- We can connect you with a broker that specializes in fire and wildfire insurance for areas that are threatened by wildfires.
By taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of wildfire on your property, you can not only protect your home and loved ones, but also potentially qualify for lower insurance rates.

Wildfire Prevention Services
Fire Risk Assessment
We assess the defensible space, combustibles around a home (home ignition zone), fences, decks, building shape, walls, roofs, roof vents, eaves & overhangs.
Home hardening solutions such as ember gutter guards, fire-resistant vents and double pane window glass prevents your home from catching fire through embers slipping through to the interior of the home.
Long-Term Fire Retardant
We utilize the same Fire Retardants used to fight wildfires as the ones dropped in the Fire Department’s airplanes (without the red dye). This gold standard fire retardant is safe and effective to apply to vegetation.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 for children, animals and pets?
Yes! The LTR is non-hazardous and poses no risk to humans, vegetation or animals/pets.
