Is Your Home Prepared for a Wildland Fire?

With fire season in full swing with many fires out of control in Northern California, ask yourself if you're prepared for a wildland fire. 100' of defensible space around your home dramatically increases the chance for firefighters to save your home in the event of a wildland fire. There are many communities in Contra Costa County that are considered "wildland-urban interface" areas with homes built within open space and heavy vegetation, potentially causing many problems for firefighters during a fire.

Please take a moment to browse our public outreach section of our website and learn more about defensible space and making your home fire safe.
